Abstract Introduction: Increasing evidence has raised an alert about the potential risk of vascular complications in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Estimating the magnitude of this risk is imperative to better address IBD patients. The aim of this study was to determine the venous (VTE) and Arterial Thromboembolic Events rates (ATE), as well as the Cardiovascular Events (CVE) and related mortality in IBD inpatients. Methods: Retrospective study including all inpatients from a tertiary hospital with IBD from 1st August 2006 to 31st May 2013 with an episode of VTE/ATE/CVE. The population was characterized using the following variables: IBD (age of diagnosis, type, location/extension/behavior using Montreal classification, activity, medication), vascular complication (diagnosis age, type, location), classical VTE and ATE/CVE risk factors, pharmacological venous thromboembolism prophylaxis and outcome (recurrence, 30-day mortality). Results: We recorded 774 admissions of IBD patients, 28 (3.6%) with thromboembolic episode: 57% male gender; average age 58 ± 17 years (13.8%
