This article discusses the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and is part of the Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines (8th Edition. [] Key Result We recommend against the use of aspirin alone as thromboprophylaxis for any patient group (Grade 1A), and we recommend that mechanical methods of thromboprophylaxis be used primarily for patients at high bleeding risk (Grade 1A) or possibly as an adjunct to anticoagulant…
American College of Chest Physicians evidence-based guidelines for venous thromboembolic prophylaxis: the guideline wars are over.

TLDR
In a departure from prior guidelines, the ACCP VTE guideline did not base its recommendations on the results of venographic screening of asymptomatic events and the clinical relevance of these types of clots has also been the subject of controversy.
Venous thromboembolism prophylaxis may cause more harm than benefit: an evidence-based analysis of Canadian and international guidelines
TLDR
A critical review of evidence reveals that most hospitalized patients have a risk of clinical VTE equal to or lower than the bleeding risk from LMWH, and guidelines recommending liberal LMWH prophylaxis in hospitalized patients are not evidence based and should be critically re-examined.
Prevention of VTE in nonsurgical patients: Antithrombotic Therapy and Prevention of Thrombosis, 9th ed: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines.
TLDR
Decisions regarding prophylaxis in nonsurgical patients should be made after consideration of risk factors for both thrombosis and bleeding, clinical context, and patients' values and preferences.
The eighth American college of chest physicians guidelines on venous thromboembolism prevention: implications for hospital prophylaxis strategies
TLDR
The updated guidelines give a strong recommendation that every hospital develop a VTE prevention policy, which is particularly important given the current international drive to reduce the incidence of VTE.
Perioperative management of antithrombotic therapy: Antithrombotic Therapy and Prevention of Thrombosis, 9th ed: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines.
TLDR
Perioperative antithrombotic management is based on risk assessment for thromboembolism and bleeding, and recommended approaches aim to simplify patient management and minimize adverse clinical outcomes.
International clinical practice guidelines for the treatment and prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer
TLDR
The use of LMWH for VTE prevention in cancer patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery may be recommended as for laparotomy and mechanical methods are not recommended as monotherapy except when pharmacological methods are contraindicated.
Consensus statements on the risk, prevention, and treatment of venous thromboembolism in inflammatory bowel disease: Canadian Association of Gastroenterology.
TLDR
Evidence from IBD studies is integrated with guidelines as a foundation to develop specific recommendations for the management of VTE in this high-risk population of patients.
Prevention of VTE in orthopedic surgery patients: Antithrombotic Therapy and Prevention of Thrombosis, 9th ed: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines.
TLDR
Optimal strategies for thromboprophylaxis after major orthopedic surgery include pharmacologic and mechanical approaches.
The use of antithrombotic therapies in the prevention and treatment of arterial and venous thrombosis: a survey of current knowledge and practice supporting the need for clinical education.
TLDR
A survey of practicing physicians and their current beliefs, behaviors, and knowledge surrounding the use of antithrombotic therapies in the treatment of their patients with AF, ACS, and VTE shows that while most physicians are confident in their abilities to treat patients with these conditions, specific knowledge of guideline recommendations for the optimal use ofAntithromBotic agents use is low.

Incorrect use of thromboprophylaxis for venous thromboembolism in medical and surgical patients: results of a multicentric, observational and cross‐sectional study in Brazil
TLDR
Despite the existence of several guidelines, this study demonstrates that adequate thromboprophylaxis is not correctly prescribed: high‐risk patients are under‐treated and low‐ risk patients are over‐treated.
Towards evidence-based guidelines for the prevention of venous thromboembolism: systematic reviews of mechanical methods, oral anticoagulation, dextran and regional anaesthesia as thromboprophylaxis.
TLDR
Patients undergoing a surgical procedure would be expected to derive net benefit from a mechanical compression method of thromboprophylaxis, irrespective of their absolute risk of venous thromboembolism.

Antithrombotic and thrombolytic therapy: from evidence to application: the Seventh ACCP Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy.
TLDR
There are few implementation strategies that are of unequivocal, consistent benefit, and that are clearly and consistently worth resource investment, and fully informed decisions will require additional research to identify effective guideline implementation strategies.

TLDR
High-quality evidence confirms the efficacy of unfractionated heparin (UFH) and low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWH) in reducing asymptomatic deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in a broad spectrum of medical patients; further studies are required to clarify the effect on fatal pulmonary embolism.
Risk of and Prophylaxis for Venous Thromboembolism in Hospital Patients
TLDR
There is overwhelming evidence that thromboembolic prophylaxis reduces the incidence of postoperative deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism and recommendations concerning the management of these patients when stratified into low, moderate and high risk are made.
Prevention of venous thromboembolism in the ICU.
TLDR
There is a paucity of data assessing the risks and prevention of VTE in critical care settings, and selection of prophylaxis for these challenging patients involves a consideration of the thromboembolic and bleeding risks, both of which may vary in the same patient from day to day.
Reduction of out-of-hospital symptomatic venous thromboembolism by extended thromboprophylaxis with low-molecular-weight heparin following elective hip arthroplasty: a systematic review.
TLDR
The absolute reduction in symptomatic venous thromboembolism attributed to extended prophylaxis in some studies and meta-analyses seems to have been overestimated.
The Seventh ACCP Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy
TLDR
The title from a conference emphasizing consensus to "ACCP Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy: Evidence-Based Guidelines" reflects the evidence-based approach to making recommendations.
Hospitals' compliance with prophylaxis guidelines for venous thromboembolism.
TLDR
A retrospective study found low rates of compliance with guidelines for thromboprophylaxis among patients with at-risk medical conditions received prophylaxis in accordance with ACCP guidelines.
