Abstract


Thromboembolic and bleeding events pose a severe risk for patients with Polycythemia Vera (PV) and Essential Thrombocythemia (ET). Many factors can contribute to determine the thrombotic event, including the interaction between platelets, leukocytes and endothelium alterations. Moreover, a very important role can be played by cardiovascular risk factors (CV.R) such as cigarette smoking habits, hypertension, diabetes, obesity and dyslipidemia. In this study we evaluated the impact that CV.R plays on thrombotic risk and survival in patients with PV and ET.
