European Society for Vascular Surgery (ESVS) 2021 Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Management of Venous Thrombosis
Editor's Choice - European Society for Vascular Surgery (ESVS) 2021 Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Management of Venous Thrombosis
The European Society for Vascular Surgery (ESVS) has developed a series of clinical practice guidelines for the care of patients with vascular diseases. Their aim is to assist clinicians in selecting the best management strategies to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
These are the first ESVS guidelines on venous thrombosis. In 2017, the ESVS Guidelines Committee (GC), initiated a process to develop these guidelines. The present guideline document addresses acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the lower extremity (unless otherwise stated), upper extremity DVT (UEDVT), superficial vein thrombosis (SVT), and thrombosis in unusual sites. The guideline document also covers topics in addition to treatments, including investigations and health economics, and includes special patient populations.The topic of venous thrombosis is large and therefore the remit of the guideline has been limited to conditions and situations likely to be commonly encountered by clinical teams/end users managing patients with venous thrombosis and others exposed to this condition.
