Answer

Thromboembolism and recurrent thromboembolism appear to be serious complications of inflammatory bowel disease. [92] In a study comprising 84 patients with inflammatory disease and a history of thromboembolism, of whom, 30% had recurrent thromboembolism, 70 patients (83%) developed venous thromboembolism (40% of which manifested as DVT and 23% as PE).
