Optimal thromboprophylaxis in nonorthopedic surgical patients will consider the risks of VTE and bleeding complications as well as the values and preferences of individual patients. Topics covered include pharmacologic and mechanical approaches to reduce patient-important outcomes, such as pulmonary embolism and symptomatic DVT. We developed similar recommendations for other nonorthopedic surgical populations.
George, MD; Anna R. Recommendations incorporate perspectives in bleeding disorders, critical prophlyaxis, preventive medicine, methodology, and cost effectiveness. VTE is a common cause of preventable death in surgical patients. The Perioperative Management of Antithrombotic Therapy Recommendations to simplify patient management and minimize adverse clinical outcomes for perioperative antithrombotic management based on risk assessment for thromboembolism and bleeding.

Antithrombotic Therapy in Neonates and Children February Recommendations focusing on the monitoring to specific target ranges for both unfractionated and low-molecular-weight heparins in neonates and children. Antithrombotic Therapy and Prevention of Thrombosis, 9th ed: Comment in Aesthet Surg J. This CHEST guideline series presents recommendations for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of thrombosis, addressing a comprehensive list of clinical conditions, including medical, surgery, orthopedic surgery, atrial fibrillation, stroke, cardiovascular disease, pregnancy, and neonates and children.
For patients at moderate to high risk for VTE who are at high risk for major bleeding complications or those in whom the consequences of bleeding are believed to be particularly severe, we suggest use of mechanical prophylaxis, preferably with IPC, over no prophylaxis until the risk of bleeding diminishes and pharmacologic prophylaxis may be initiated Grade 2C.
We developed recommendations for thromboprophylaxis in nonorthopedic surgical patients by using systematic methods as described in Methodology for the Development of Antithrombotic Therapy and Prevention of Thrombosis Guidelines. The slides address the risks of venous thromboembolism and bleeding complications, as well as the values and preferences of individual patients.
For patients at high risk for VTE undergoing abdominal or pelvic surgery for cancer, we recommend extended-duration, postoperative, pharmacologic prophylaxis 4 weeks with LMWH over limited-duration prophylaxis Grade 1B.
Prevention of Venous Thromboembolism in Orthopedic Surgery Patients Recommendations for the optimal strategies for thromboprophylaxis after major orthopedic surgery. Treatment and Prevention of Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia February Recommendations regarding heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and the primary efficacy outcome measures of interest, including new thrombosis, limb amputation, and major bleeding and death propbylaxis to thrombosis or bleeding.
Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy for Valves February Recommendations based on the optimal balance of thrombotic and hemorrhagic risk for antithrombotic therapy in valvular disease. For patients in all risk groups, we suggest that an inferior vena cava filter not be used for primary VTE prevention Grade 2C and that surveillance with venous compression ultrasonography should not be performed Grade 2C.
We describe several alternatives for stratifying the risk of VTE in general and abdominal-pelvic surgical patients. Antithrombotic Therapy in Atrial Fibrillation February Recommendations regarding atrial fibrillation based on net clinical benefit for patients at varying levels of stroke risk and in a number of common clinical scenarios. CHEST develops slide sets to incorporate into educational presentations, for the purposes of disseminating and explaining guideline recommendations.
Venous Thromboembolism, Thrombophilia, Antithrombotic Therapy, and Pregnancy February Recommendations focusing on the management of venous thromboembolism and thrombophilia.
The slide set highlights single antiplatelet therapy for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular events in most patients with asymptomatic PAD, symptomatic PAD, and asymptomatic carotid stenosis.
It acknowledges the ongoing need for dedicated clinical trials that demonstrate the differences in the pharmacokinetics, dose responses, and monitoring tests for anticoagulation therapy in children compared with adults.
Antithrombotic Therapy in Peripheral Artery Disease February Recommendations regarding antithrombotic drug therapies for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease as well as for the relief of lower-extremity symptoms gujdelines critical ischemia in patients with peripheral arterial disease PAD. In these patients, we suggest adding mechanical prophylaxis with elastic stockings or IPC to pharmacologic prophylaxis Grade 2C. Prevention of Venous Thromboembolism in Nonsurgical Patients Recommendations regarding the decisions in prophylaxis in nonsurgical patients.
The Primary and Secondary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease February Recommendations focusing on long-term administration of antithrombotic drugs designed for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, including two new antiplatelet therapies ticagrelor and prasugrel.

It discusses the use of antithrombotic agents during pregnancy and the associated challenges because of the potential for both fetal and maternal complications. These slides address initiation, maintenance, dosing, drug interactions, bleeding, and organization of care, offering guidance for gudelines common anticoagulation-related management problems.
Prevention of Venous Thromboembolism in Nonorthopedic Surgical Patients Recommendations for optimal thromboprophylaxis in nonorthopedic surgical patients. Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy for Ischemic Stroke February Recommendations for the use of antithrombotic therapy in patients with stroke or transient ischemic attack.
