HTRS TE Registry (ThromboEmbolism Registry)
The TE Registry is a multi-institutional bioinformatics database for the collection of data relevant to TE. Participating HTRS affiliated study centers may enroll patients and enter data in the TE Registry by completing enrollment and data entry forms and transmitting them to the study center. The purpose of this study is to improve our understanding of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and outcome of patients suffering from thromboembolism (TE) events.
The initial objectives of the registry are:
- Evaluate the epidemiology and clinical characteristics of known prothrombotic risk factors in persons with TE.
- Identify the frequency and nature of complications associated with TE and its treatment.
- Describe the phenotypes and complications seen in persons with multiple molecular risk factors for TE.
- Compare the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and complications seen in patients with and without known risk factors for TE.

Hereditary defects that predispose to thromboembolism (TE) and its complications afflict 5-8% of the U.S population. Annually, ~60,000 Americans die from TE and half of the survivors suffer long-term morbidity. Despite these staggering statistics, little is known about the clinical characteristics or epidemiology of the inherited risk factors for TE. Less is known regarding the acquired risk factors or the phenotype of TE in persons with multiple risk factors, yet preliminary data suggest that as many as 10% of patients may have multiple risk factors.
Data from several studies, primarily involving adult subjects, shows that in a population of consecutively studied thrombosis patients, that one of the five most common inherited predispositions will occur in ~33.8%. Antithrombin (AT) is the least common (~1.9%) of these, while Factor V Leiden (FVL) is the most common (~18.8%). Most children who suffer from TE have indwelling catheters to assist therapy of underlying medical conditions, or are sick neonates. Thus, the contribution of molecular risk factors in children is largely unknown, with the exception of sparse retrospective data.
The TE Registry may help clearly define the clinical phenotype, epidemiology, and complications seen in patients with TE associated with known molecular risk factors.
