VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM - MANAGEMENT
Deep vein thrombosis is a frequent manifestation of venous thromboembolism in which there is a blood clot blocking a deep vein.
Clinical findings are important to the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis but are poor predictors of the presence or severity of thrombosis.
Pulmonary embolism is the blockage of the blood vessels in the lungs usually due to blood clots from the veins, especially veins in the legs and pelvis.
Dyspnea, pleuritic chest pain, syncope and tachypnea occur in most cases of pulmonary embolism.
Massive pulmonary embolism has the prime symptom of dyspnea and systemic arterial hypotension that requires pressor support is the predominant sign.

Use of aspirin in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with no prior CVD history yields protection against the risks of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and ischaemic stroke, but at the expense of an increase of similar magnitude in the incidence of major bleeding, according to the results of a recent meta-analysis presented at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2019 in Paris, France.

A comprehensive model of care delivered by nonphysician health workers (NPHWs), involving primary care physicians and families that was informed by local context, substantially improved blood pressure (BP) control and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, according to results of the HOPE 4 trial reported at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2019 and World Congress of Cardiology (WCC) 2019.
