abstract

  • Important clinical data with a significant impact on the clinical management of venous thromboembolism (VTE) were presented at The International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) meeting, held in Geneva, Switzerland in July of 2007. In addition, 2 new guidelines for the management of patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) were published in 2007, and will have a significant impact on daily practice. Finally, the approval of new practice-changing, paradigm-shifting oral anticoagulants is on the horizon. This article will review the top 4 advances in antithrombotic care and discuss their impact on the clinical management of VTE.
