Treatment of First Episode of Venous Thrombosis
Patients with venous thrombosis are usually treated with heparin and then with oral anticoagulants. The pattern of practice related to the continued use of oral anticoagulants after the patient with venous thromboembolism is discharged from hospital varies considerably from centre to centre. Some clinicians use no anticoagulants after the patient is discharged, while others treat the patient for up to a year.
