Brief Summary:
The objective of this investigation is to assess safety and effectiveness of Xarelto under practice routine use in VTE secondary prevention after acute DVT, focusing on hemorrhagic-related AEs, recurrent venous thromboembolism (PE/DVT), all-cause mortality. This study is a company sponsored, one- arm prospective cohort study with patients to whom Rivaroxaban treatment for VTE (PE/DVT) has been chosen. The study includes a standard observation period (1 year) and an extension survey period (2 years, at the longest).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with ISTH (International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis) major bleeding as a measure of Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
  2. Number of participants with symptomatic recurrent VTE (composite of DVT or nonfatal or fatal pulmonary embolism) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Composite number of all-cause mortality, vascular events (acute coronary syndrome, ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack, or systemic embolism), clinically relevant non-major bleeding and all other adverse events/ADRs [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
  2. Number of participants with asymptomatic deterioration of thrombotic burden (change of D-dimer, imaging test such as CT or CCUS) by the end of standard observation period [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
  3. Frequency of VTE recurrence and adverse events/ADRs comparison between distal and/or proximal DVT localization treatment outcomes [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
