ASH VTE Guidelines: Treatment of Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism
In August 2022, these guidelines were reviewed by an expert work group convened by ASH. Review included limited searches for new evidence and discussion of the search results. Following this review, the ASH Committee on Quality agreed to continue monitoring the supporting evidence rather than revise or retire these guidelines at this time. Limited searches and expert review will be repeated annually going forward until these guidelines are revised or retired.
The purpose of this guideline is to provide evidence-based recommendations about the treatment of DVT and PE in patients without cancer. The target audience includes patients, hematologists, general practitioners, internists, hospitalists, vascular interventionalists, intensivists, other clinicians, pharmacists, and decision-makers.
