New Guidelines Issued for Prevention and Management of Thrombosis

JAMA. 2008;300(8):890. doi:10.1001/jama.300.8.890

Updated evidence-based guidelines for the prevention and management of thrombosis by the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) give more explicit directions for managing certain patient populations on long-term antithrombotic therapy, such as those facing surgery, those who are pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, and children.

The eighth edition of Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines was published as a 900-page supplement to the June issue of Chest (Hirsh J et al. Chest. 2008;133[6 suppl]67S-968S).
