High-sensitivity C-reactive protein is not a risk factor for venous thromboembolism: the Tromso study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
High-sensitivity C-reactive protein is associated with risk of arterial cardiovascular disease but conflicting results have been reported on its role in venous thromboembolic disease. The objective of our study was to investigate the association between high-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels and risk of future venous thromboembolism in a prospective cohort recruited from a general population. ...

Atrial Fibrillation and Cause-Speciﬁc Risks of Pulmonary Embolism and Ischemic Stroke
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-29)
<p><i>Background</i>: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a well‐established risk factor for ischemic stroke (IS). Emerging evidence also indicates an association between AF and pulmonary embolism (PE). Because IS may potentially mediate the observed risk of PE in AF, we aimed to assess the impact of AF on the cause‐specific risks of PE and IS in a large cohort recruited from the general population.</p> ...
