ASH 2011: Highlights in Thrombosis and Anticoagulation

| Other topics, Uncategorized | Comments Off on ASH 2011: Highlights in Thrombosis and Anticoagulation

The annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) took place in San Diego from Dec 10-13, 2011.  Abstracts on thrombosis and anticoagulation that I found  interesting and clinically relevant  are summarized and put into a clinical perspective in this summary document.  Only one abstract was, in my assessment, clinical-practice-changing – abstract #543: “Aspirin after oral anticoagulants for prevention of recurrence in patients with unprovoked VTE. The WARFASA study”.  It is the first abstract discussed in the summary document.

 

Disclosure:  I have no conflict of interest relevant to this post.
