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.
