In pregnant women the risk of venous thromboembolism is 2-4 times higher than non-pregnant peers. The thrombo-prophylaxis should be an individual therapy in order to achieve a decrease of venous thrombosis incidence as well as the related risks of daily subcutaneous heparin infusion. In our study we have evaluate the clinical course of 10000 pregnant women, between 2003 and 2008, with respect to venous thrombosis incidence, with or without the attribution of an individual risk score of thromboembolism. This thrombo-prophylactic strategy, object of our study that also several authors follow, appears to be an excellent method to decrease the rate of thromboembolic events during pregnancy.
