Venous disease encompasses a wide spectrum of clinical pathology. Thrombophilias are acquired and inherited hypercoagulable conditions that are prevalent among patients with various manifestations of venous disease. However, treatment guidelines often do not investigate the effect of thrombophilia on treatment outcomes. We aim to review the evidence for the relationship between thrombophilias and venous disease, and highlight situations in which the presence of thrombophilia may affect treatment options and outcomes.
