    Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a recognised complication of sickle cell disease (SCD), long considered to be a hypercoagulable state. While there is a good understanding of arterial thrombosis in SCD, the nature of VTE in SCD is less well-characterised. In this retrospective cohort study, we...
