Nice | Venous thromboembolism (DVT) investigation and management

3rd August 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline is a good summary of the management of the investigation and management of venous thromboembolism . Different areas locally vary a lot in how they manage patients (eg anticoagulation clinics vs GP led services), so you may think most of this is done in the clinics – but if you work in Southampton – it may be you!

Remember that SIGN released some excellent guidance last year which covers VTE in special groups – eg pregnant women / flying etc.

The big changes here are in clarifying who needs what investigations for cancer and thrombophilia after a VTE. The rest is probably familiar to everyone.
