Clinical Use of D-dimer in Venous Thromboembolism
2018-10-12 to 2018-10-31, 08:00 - 09:00

D-dimer can be a useful tool in the management of patients with suspected or established venous thromboembolism (VTE). One use is in the assessment of a patient who presents with symptoms of VTE. First, a pre-test probability assessment with a validated scoring system, such as the Wells’ score, is performed by the clinician. Based on the absence or presence of a number of symptoms and signs of VTE and the presence of VTE risk factors, a patient is considered to be at low or high risk for VTE. In the low risk group, a D-dimer can then be performed. A negative result rules out VTE, making further imaging studies (e.g. venous Doppler ultrasound or chest CT scan) unnecessary. The second use of the D-dimer test is as a tool when determining the length of anticoagulation therapy necessary in a patient who has had a VTE. In patients with unprovoked or estrogen-associated VTE, a negative D-dimer – on or off anticoagulation - predicts a lower risk of recurrence, whereas a positive D-dimer predicts a higher risk. D-dimer has been incorporated into several decision tools for assessing length of anticoagulation, such as the HERDOO-2 score, the DASH-score, and the Vienna-score. Learning Objectives: 1. Discuss how D-dimer is used by clinicians in conjunction with a clinical pre-test probability assessment in the evaluation of a patient who presents with symptoms leading to suspicion of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) 2. List several of the components of the Wells’ score for the pretest probability assessment of DVT and PE 3. Discuss how D-dimer is used by clinicians to determine length of anticoagulation in patients with DVT or PE 4. Discuss the risk-of-VTE-recurrence triangle and VTE recurrence risk assessment tools (e.g. HERDOO-2 score, DASH-score, Vienna score) available to clinicians for determining how long a patient should be treated with anticoagulation

Webinar: Clinical Use of D-dimer in Venous Thromboembolism
2018-10-12 to 2018-10-12, 08:00 - 09:00

VTE can present as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) and, if left untreated, can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. VTE affects between 300-600,000 Americans annually, with approximately 100,000 deaths – a significant number of cases diagnosed upon autopsy. Further, PE is the leading cause of preventable hospital death and maternal mortality. When used with a pretest probability clinical scoring algorithm such as the Wells score, D-dimer is a useful tool to screen patients with suspected VTE. Another use of the versatile D-dimer assay is to determine the length of anticoagulation therapy necessary in a patient with prior VTE, along with assessment of recurrence risk.

Dr. Stephan Moll, professor of medicine at UNC-Chapel Hill, is the speaker for the event. Dr. Moll received his medical degree from Freiburg University. In his current position at UNC-Chapel Hill, his clinical focus is coagulation, particularly thrombosis and thrombophilia. Dr. Moll’s research interests include clinical trials on new anticoagulants, better use of established anticoagulants, antiphospholipid syndrome and post-thrombotic syndrome. He has a major interest in patient and health care provider education on related areas.

LabRoots will host the webinar live on October 12, beginning at 8 a.m. PDT, and it will be available on-demand following the live event.

Airport awareness campaign has been working successfully over the past 4 years and continues this year, too with the courteous voluntary cooperation of several leading Greek airlines as well as with the personnel of the civil aviation authority of almost all the domestic and international airports in Greece. Through the distribution of an informative card to the public related to thrombosis and the risk of VTE during short-term and long-term flights we have been able to inform and educate public on the prevention and the treatment of thrombosis. Five years flowing and we shall continue… Also, campaign’s poster will be available for public awareness at the baggage reclaim areas of all airports at the same days.

New this year is a flash mob in the pool - The motto is movement and an active way of life against thrombosis. We are utilizing the conduct of a theatrolized action - drowning thrombosis with anticoagulants. The flash mob will be attended by students, teachers, patients, television and media. As in previous years, the film will be recorded and shared.
