Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With the Composite of Fatal or Non-fatal Symptomatic Recurrent Venous Thromboembolism [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months, at least 6 months ]

    The primary efficacy outcomes (i.e., recurrent venous thromboembolism [VTE] defined as composite of fatal or non-fatal symptomatic recurrent VTE, including unexplained death for which pulmonary embolism [PE] could not be ruled out) as confirmed by the central independent adjudication committee (CIAC) were considered up to the end of the individual intended duration of treatment.

    Incidence of the composite of the primary and secondary efficacy outcome and its components are based on the first occurrence to participant.

  2. Number of Participants With First Treatment-emergent Major Bleeding [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months, at least 6 months ]

    The principal safety outcome was major bleeding which was defined according to the criteria of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH) as clinically overt bleeding and associated with a fall in hemoglobin of 2 gram per deciliter (g/dL) or more, or leading to a transfusion of 2 or more units of packed red blood cells or whole blood, or occurring in a critical site, e.g. intracranial, intraspinal, intraocular, pericardial, intra articular, intramuscular with compartment syndrome, retroperitoneal, or contributing to death.

    Incidence of the composite of the primary and secondary efficacy outcome and its components are based on the first occurrence to participant.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With the Composite of the Primary Efficacy Outcome, Myocardial Infarction, Ischemic Stroke or Systemic Non-CNS Embolism [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months, at least 6 months ]
    The secondary efficacy outcome is the composite of the primary efficacy outcome, myocardial infarction (MI), ischemic stroke or non-central nervous system (CNS) systemic embolism. Incidence of the composite of the primary and secondary efficacy outcome and its components are based on the first occurrence to participant.

  2. Number of Participants With Non-major Bleeding Associated With Study Drug Interruption for > 14 Days [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months, at least 6 months ]
    The secondary safety outcome was clinically relevant non-major (CRNM) bleeding, which was adjudicated by the CIAC using the ASA criteria: the bleeding was non-major and the bleeding was associated with a study medication interruption of more than 14 days.
