Dr. Alex C. Spyropoulos, MD, FACP, FCCP, FRCPC, will serve as the guest presenter. In this webinar, Dr. Spyropoulos will discuss recent advances in both the use of clinical VTE risk assessment models and potential VTE biomarkers to identify patients at higher risk for VTE and to improve prevention of VTE among hospitalized patients.

He will also discuss potential future utility of these strategies to identify particularly high-risk patients who would benefit from extended (long-term) thromboprophylaxis to prevent VTE.
