Venous thromboembolism (VTE) management is rapidly evolving and staying up-to-date is challenging. We identified the most practice-informing articles published in 2017 relevant to the non-specialist provider managing VTE. We performed a systematic search of the literature (Appendix A), limiting the search to a publication date of 2017. Two reviewers screened the 2735 resulting abstracts to identify high-quality, clinically relevant publications related to VTE management. One hundred and six full-text articles were considered for inclusion. The five authors used a modified Delphi method to reach consensus on inclusion of 7 articles for in-depth appraisal, following predetermined criteria of clinical relevance to non-specialist providers, potential for practice change, and strength of the evidence.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Hospital practice (1995)
Venous thromboembolism is a common complication of cancer, but the risk of developing venous thromboembolism varies greatly among individuals and depends on numerous factors, including type of cancer....
Deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolus are leading preventable causes of death after surgery. Venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis management guidelines, with evidenced-based recommendations...
Currently, little evidence is available on the length and type of anticoagulation used for extended treatment for prevention of recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with unprovoked VTE w...
Following venous injury, venorrhaphy can restore outflow, although it risks thrombosis and venous thromboembolism (VTE). Vein ligation is a faster option, although it potentially risks extremity edema...
There is lack of evidence to guide the type, intensity, and the duration of anticoagulation following venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
The study objective is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral YM150 for 52 weeks in patients with a history of venous thromboembolism.
In a population of patients with venous thromboembolism and treated with oral anticoagulants (OAC) in routine clinical practice in Denmark this study will describe patients treated with ea...
The risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) in DM1 and in other inherited myopathies, which can lead to chronic immobilization, are unknown. The purpose of this study is to evaluate incidenc...
The proposed research seeks to provide insights on the contemporary epidemiology, treatment, and outcomes of VTE, including examining the uptake of new treatment strategies, the efficacy a...
This study was designed to assess the safety and efficacy of GW813893 in the prophylaxis of VTE following TKR and to provide evidence to enable the selection of the appropriate dose(s) and...
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
Obstruction of a vein or VEINS (embolism) by a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the blood stream.
MICROCOMPUTERS, sometimes called PDA, that are very small and portable, fitting in a hand, and that have much more function than a calculator. They are convenient to use in clinical and other field situations for quick data management. They usually require docking with MICROCOMPUTERS for updates.
An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
