CONCLUSIONS: Overall adherence to published guidelines for VTE prophylaxis has improved compared with other published reviews on the topic, but documentation of patients' VTE risk in files is poor. Overuse in low-risk patients may be an unintended consequence of the widespread advocacy of LMWH use in hospital, highlighting the importance of adequate VTE risk stratification. Incorrect dosing in special population groups is an issue that needs to be addressed, as is non-utilisation of mechanical prophylaxis methods. PMID: 32657702 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Aim: To study demographic and clinical characteristics and to give a comparative description of the functional and hemodynamic status, profile of concomitant pathology in patients with various forms of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) according to the Russian National Registry. Methods: During the period from January 01, 2012, till January 01, 2019, 1105 patients aged>18 years with verified diagnosis of PAH and CTEPH, who were subsequently observed at 15 PH expert centers of the Russian Federation in the 52 provinces, are included in ...

ConclusionsSince COVID-19 patients are at increased risk for arterial occlusion, it appears advisable to meticulously check for adequacy of collateral (hand-) perfusion, avoiding the harm of hand ischemia if interventions (e.g., catheterizations) at the radial or ulnar artery are intended.

Conclusion: Coagulation profile plays an important role in posttraumatic thromboembolic disease. A thorough assessment for features of thromboembolic disorders is warranted in polytrauma patients to avoid missing this potentially life-threatening diagnosis. Larger studies are needed for better understanding and management of VTE in trauma.

Conclusion: Pregnancy was the most common provoking factor for VTE in our study. Pregnant women should undergo formal, written assessments of risk factors for VTE at the first visit and delivery. Larger studies with a randomized design, and control groups are required to confirm the current findings. PMID: 32351991 [PubMed - in process]
