The ValRieteS study is an international, multicenter, prospective, cohort study, in patients with a first unprovoked symptomatic venous thromboembolic event. Patients will be follow up for 1 year to know if they are diagnosed by unknown cancer, for externally validating the RIETE score, developed for identifying patients with unprovoked VTE who are at an increased risk for occult cancer.
To validate, prospectively, the RIETE prognostic score for identifying which patients with VTE are at an increased risk for subsequent cancer.
Early-stage solid cancer according to risk stratification by RIETE score.
All-cause mortality according to risk stratification by RIETE score.
Cancer-related mortality according to risk stratification by RIETE score.
Solid cancer and site of cancer according to risk stratification by RIETE score.
Hematological cancer according to risk stratification by RIETE score.
Analyze the value of D-dimer, at the time of the VTE event, as a predictor of cancer.
