Annual Hematology Meeting: Relevant New Developments

The annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH; www.hematology.org) took place in San Diego from Dec 10-13, 2011.  Clinically interesting and relevant abstracts on thrombosis and anticoagulation are summarized and put into a clinical perspective in this summary document. This document is prepared for health care professionals, not patients, but the interested non-medical reader may find it interesting to glance over the topics discussed. The only abstract that was, in my assessment, clinical-practice-changing, was abstract #543: “Aspirin after oral anticoagulants for prevention of recurrence in patients with unprovoked VTE. The WARFASA study”.  This abstract/study is summarized for the non-medical person on the Clot Connect patient blog (connect here for the blog post).

 

Disclosure:  I have no conflict of interest relevant to this post.
