Data from 12 Cincinnati hospitals were examined to determine the incidence of venous thromboembolic disease in nonpregnant women of reporductive age. The incidence of superficial and deep vein thromboembolic disease in women age 15 to 44 was 1.09 cases per 1,000 women per year; for women age 20 to 44 the incidence was 1.3 cases for 1,000 women per year. These figures include idiopathic and non-idiopathic cases and thus are representative of the general population of nonpregnant women of reporductive age. The incidence of pulmonary embolism was approximately 1 case per 5,000 women age 20 to 44. There were two deaths from pulmonary embolism, giving a mortality rate of 11.3 deaths per million women age 15 to 44.
