Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a chronic disease that affects nearly 10 million people every year worldwide. Cardiovascular disorders (CVDs) remain the most common cause of death in Europe. Both VTE and CVD are associated with potentially preventable morbidity and mortality. In recent decades, many efforts have been made in order to improve the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for VTE and with the aim of reducing the burden of CVD. All novel direct oral anticoagulants introduced in the last few years have shown a favourable benefit–risk balance in terms of efficacy and safety profile, both in the prevention of thromboembolic events in atrial fibrillation and in the prevention and treatment of VTE. 

Ongoing research is, nowadays, focused on intensifying the use of oral anticoagulants in different clinical indications and, at the same time, on developing safer anticoagulant drugs, as well as improving diagnostic strategies and further personalizing approaches for the prevention and management of thrombotic disorders.

The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight recent advances related to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of several thrombotic conditions.
