Abstract

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a significant medical diagnosis that affects millions of patients each year. Appropriate management of VTE can help treat the initial event as well as reduce the frequency of complications such as postthrombotic syndrome, pulmonary hypertension, and death. Due to increasing regulatory requirements, hospitals nationwide are developing necessary documentation of appropriate and safe use of anticoagulants for the management of VTE. It is essential that a wide range of clinicians have an understanding of what constitutes appropriate VTE treatment in various patient populations. With the existence of numerous pharmacologic agents, abundance of major clinical trials, and nationally recognized clinical guidelines, compiling the needed reference material to make evidence-based decisions on appropriate VTE treatment can be difficult for clinicians. Therefore we have provided bibliographies of key articles and guidelines related to the treatment of VTE with a number of different strategies in a variety of special patient populations. It is our hope that this compilation will serve as a resource for pharmacists, physicians, nurses, residents, and students responsible for the care of patients with VTE.
