Canadian Outpatient VTE Management Registry

2014-08-27 03:13:20 | BioPortfolio


Primary Objective:

- To obtain prospective, clinical practice-based data on how symptomatic VTE is managed with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) enoxaparin in Canadian outpatient settings.

Secondary Objective:

- To describe the demographic and clinical characteristics of patients with symptomatic VTE including characteristics of VTE, VTE risk factors and bleeding risk factors.

- To assess the frequency of patient characteristics that would necessitate adjustment in the dose or duration of enoxaparin therapy, e.g. high BMI, impaired creatinine clearance, advanced age, cancer-associated VTE.

- To assess the degree of adherence in clinical practice to Consensus Guidelines (ACCP/American College of chest Physician 2008) for the management of acute VTE, vis a vis:

- Appropriate dosing of enoxaparin

- Recommended duration of initial LMWH therapy

- Adequate overlap of LMWH with vitamin K antagonists (VKA)

- Recommended duration of longterm VKA

- Frequency of use of LMWH monotherapy to treat cancer-related VTE

- To access safety outcomes (including bleeding and recurrent VTE)

- To describe the utilization of resources due to bleeding and recurrent VTE during the treatment period.
