World Thrombosis Day, October 13, 2018

Thrombosis refers to abnormal, life-threatening blood clots that form in the artery or vein. A clot in the vein (usually in the leg or pelvis) is known as a deep vein thrombosis (DVT ) and a clot that breaks off and travels to the lungs is known as a pulmonary embolism (PE ). Together, DVT and PE make up venous thromboembolism (VTE ).

World Thrombosis Day Webinar: Registration is now open for the World Thrombosis Day (WTD) 2018 Webinar on Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 10–11 am US EDT. Join leading experts Dr. Gary Raskob and Dr. Jeffrey Weitz for "Hospital-Associated Venous Thromboembolism: What You Need to Know." The webinar is proudly co-hosted by the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH ) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC ). Registration is free and all are welcome to attend.
