Objective: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a disease that includes both deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Bilirubin is an endogenous anti-inflammatory marker associated with atherothrombosis. The purpose of our study was to investigate the association of serum bilirubin levels with the presence of VTE.
