App Store Description

Based on international guidelines published in 2016, this app is a practical, step-by-step guide for the prophylaxis and treatment of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer, including:
• Prophylaxis in hospitalized and ambulatory patients
• Treatment guidance for both non-catheter and catheter-related VTE
• Specific guidance related to various cancer and treatment types
• Early, short-term, and long-term treatment guidance

This treatment algorithm is intended for physicians and other healthcare professionals treating patients with cancer. It should not replace clinical judgement. It is based on clinical practice guidelines published in 2016:
Farge D, Bounameaux H, Brenner B, Cajfinger F, Debourdeau P, Khorana AA, Pabinger I, Solymoss S, Douketis J, Kakkar A. International clinical practice guidelines including guidance for direct oral anticoagulants in the treatment and prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer. Lancet Oncol 2016;17(10):e452-e466.

While these guidelines rely on the best available evidence at the time of publication, the clinician is advised to use clinical judgement when making decisions about prophylaxis and treatment of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer.
