Venous Thromboembolism in DM1 (DM1-VTE)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03141749
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : May 5, 2017
Last Update Posted : May 9, 2017
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Institut de Myologie, France

Brief Summary:
The risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) in DM1 and in other inherited myopathies, which can lead to chronic immobilization, are unknown. The purpose of this study is to evaluate incidence of VTE in cohort of patients presenting with DM1 with a comparison to a group of other inheritable myopathies and to a community-based population.

Condition or disease
Venous Thromboembolism Pulmonary Embolism Deep Vein Thrombosis Myopathy Myotonic Dystrophy 1

Detailed Description:

A cohort of more that 2,800 adult patients admitted to our Institutions between January 2000 and November 2014 with genetically proven myopathy will be retrospectively included.

Any information relative to their demographic and genetic characteristics, their muscular functional status and the occurrence of VTE will be collected.

Statistical analysis will be performed to estimate the incidence of venous thromboembolism in this population, to identify predictors of VTE, and to compare its incidence to a community-based population.
