- Composite end-point represented by the time in days from randomisation to the first occurrence of VTE [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Symptomatic non-fatal DVTs.
- Symptomatic non-fatal PEs.
- Fatal PE.
- Incidental proximal DVT (popliteal vein or higher).
- Incidental proximal PE (segmental arteries or larger).
- Time in days from randomisation to the first occurrence of VTE. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- The 5 individual components of the composite primary efficacy endpoint.
- A composite endpoint of symptomatic DVT and/or PE, including fatal PE.
Safety endpoints will consist of bleeding and overall mortality
