Interventional radiologists are increasing managing and treating patients with complex coagulation issues. During this session, a world-class faculty will review thrombophilias and hypercoagulable workups, the latest anticoagulants, complex anticoagulation scenarios and how they impact IR procedures, venous thromboembolic treatment guidelines and how IRs can run their own anticoagulation clinic.
Originally presented at SIR 2016 Annual Scientific Meeting in Vancouver, B.C.
Upon completion of this enduring activity, participants should be able to:
- Understand when a patient should undergo a hypercoagulable workup and what specific tests should be ordered.
- Understand the advantages and disadvantages of each of the new oral anticoagulant medications.
