An estimated 37 million patients are affected by thrombotic disorders each year. This number will continue to rise with the increase in our aging population. This conference will focus on clinically applicable and cutting-edge methods used in the evaluation and treatment of patients with arterial and venous thrombotic disorders. Issues unique to novel anticoagulants, for example, variables in dosing (including high-risk patients), measurement, and reversal will be discussed.

The laboratory evaluation of patients with congenital and acquired thrombotic disorders will be reviewed.

Lectures and case studies will be presented by a multidisciplinary Mayo Clinic faculty with ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss difficult diagnostic or management issues. Case-based study questions with panel discussion will be covered throughout the conference.


Presented by:

  • Mayo Clinic Divisions of Cardiovascular Diseases and Hematology, Department of Internal Medicine
  • Mayo Medical Laboratories


Intended Audience

This program is designed for practicing clinicians, primary care providers, hematologists, cardiologists, neurologists, hospitalists, vascular medicine specialists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurses, and laboratory scientists and technologists whose practices and interests include aspects of thrombotic disorders.


Conference Objectives

Upon completion of the conference, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the optimal strategy to diagnose and manage venous thrombosis.
  • Employ a practical approach to evaluation and management of cancer patients at risk of venous thromboembolism.
  • Describe periprocedural anticoagulation management for cancer patients on chronic antithrombotic therapy requiring an invasive procedure.
  • Describe the laboratory validation process and define appropriate laboratory measuring of patients receiving novel anticoagulant therapy.
  • Outline the evolving role of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACS) in patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia.
  • Recognize newer anticoagulants being used for treatment of deep vein thrombosis.
  • Review the laboratory aspects of thrombophilia testing.
