Brief Summary:

The treatment of the venous thromboembolic disease, including pulmonary embolism (PE), is based on anticoagulants. During the last decade, all the randomized clinical trials evaluating these anticoagulants have included PE patients with an average age below 60 years. But in clinical pratice, approximately 50% of PE patients are older than 75 years.

So the investigators want to perform a french multicentre prospective cohort of consecutive patients receiving an anticoagulant treatment for a symptomatic and confirmed PE. All the validated and available anticoagulant treatments are authorized in this cohort (unfractionnated and low molecular weight heparins, fondaparinux, vitamin K antagonists and direct oral anticoagulants).

This cohort will provide data regarding the bleeding risk and the risk of PE recurrences and regarding the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) properties of these anticoagulants in this older population. Using population approach modelling , the investigators will pay particular attention to the sources of PK/PD variability PK / PD such as genetic polymorphisms of P-glycoprotein and cytochrome P450.

Using all these data , the investigators will try to identify significant risk factors for bleeding and venous thromboembolic events.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patients older than 75 years receiving an anticoagulant treatment for a symptomatic and confirmed PE
Other: 4 blood samples
PK and / or PD measurements during hospitalization

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Major bleeding defined by the International Society of Thrombosis & Haemostasis [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
    • Bleeding causing a fall in hemoglobin level of 20 g L−1 (1.24 mmol L−1) or more, or leading to transfusion of two or more units of whole blood or red cells.,
    • Symptomatic bleeding in a critical area or organ, such as intracranial, intraspinal, intraocular, retroperitoneal, intra-articular or pericardial, or intramuscular with compartment syndrome,
    • Fatal bleeding

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinically relevant non-major bleeding [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]

    defined by:

    • Subcutaneous hematoma spontaneous over 25 cm2
    • Spontaneous epistaxis for more than 5 minutes
    • Spontaneous or after urinary catheter hematuria for more than 24 hours
    • Significant rectal bleeding
    • Gingival bleeding for more than 5 minutes
    • Bleeding requiring hospitalization and / or a hemostatic action

  2. Recurrent pulmonary embolism [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
    confirmed by CT scan or ventilation/perfusion lung scan

  3. Deep vein thrombosis (recurrence or new) [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
    confirmed by venous doppler ultrasonography or venography of the lower limbs or CT scan

  4. Arterial cardiovascular events [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
    • Acute coronary syndrom with or without ST-segment elevation
    • Stroke ischemic or hemorrhagic confirmed by CT scan or magnetic resonance imaging brain
    • Acute ischemic phenomena (lower limbs, mesenteric ...) confirmed by arterial doppler or arteriography.

  5. Death [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
