The article presents the information that ximelagatran prevented secondary venous thromboembolism. Analysis was by intention to treat. Fewer patients who received ximelagatran had recurrent VTE events than did patients who received placebo.Groups did not differ for major or minor bleeding or for all-cause mortality In patients with deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism receiving standard anticoagulant therapy for 6 months, ximelagatran reduced recurrent venous thromboembolism and did not increase bleeding.
