1. In patients treated with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) for atrial fibrillation or venous thromboembolism (VTE), adding aspirin (ASA) was associated with increased bleeding events. 2. Adding ASA to DOAC treatment for patients with atrial fibrillation or VTE did not improve the incidence of thrombotic events. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study...
1. For patients who underwent elective surgery and were at moderate to high risk of venous thromboembolism, pharmaco-thromboprophylaxis with low molecular weight heparin alone was noninferior to a combination of pharmaco-thromboprophylaxis and graduated compression stockings. Evidence Rating: 1 (Excellent) Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is associated with significant mortality and morbidity worldwide. For patients...
1. In a prospective observational trial of 100 patients with a history of acute deep venous thrombosis (DVT) managed with compression therapy or anticoagulants, 34% developed post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) after 12 to 36 months. 2. PTS was associated with older age, recurrent DVT, and insufficient recanalization post DVT. Evidence Rating Level:...
1. In a randomized controlled trial of over 500 patients with a diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), the use of elastic compression therapy (ECT) for 1 year was inferior to use of ECT for 2 years. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Post-thrombotic syndrome is a complication of DVT,...
