PRESENTATION OBJECTIVES 2 Provide a brief background regarding venous thromboembolism (VTE) Identify the risk factors for developing VTE Review the general principles for thromboprophylaxis Review CHEST Guideline VTE prophylaxis recommendations for  Medical Conditions  Orthopedic Surgery Review old and new suggested medications to be used for VTE prevention Describe potential drug-interactions related to patients who may be admitted to psychiatric services
  • 3. VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM 3  Result of clot formation in venous circulation  Manifests as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE)  Develops as a result of three primary components known as Virchow’s triad  Venous Stasis  Vascular Injury  Hypercoagulability
  • 4. DVT PROPHYLAXIS 4 Incidence of DVT in the hospital is 10-40% per month for medical or general surgical patients and 40-60% following major orthopedic surgeries Consequences of unprevented VTE:  Symptomatic DVT or PE  Fatal PE  Increased spending for investigation symptomatic patients  Increased risk of recurrence  Chronic post-thrombotic syndrome DVT prophylaxis, has a desirable benefit-to-risk ratio

  • 8. CONSIDERATIONS 8 50 – 70% of symptomatic thromboembolic events and 70 – 80% of fatal PEs occur in non-surgical patients Additional risk factors for VTE in medical patients Stroke with Advanced age Previous VTE Cancer lower extremity weakness Congestive COPD Sepsis Bed Rest Heart Failure Exacerbation
  • 9. Acutely Ill Hospitalized Medical Patients 9Recommended Recommended Against Low-Molecular Weight  The use of thromboprophylaxis Heparins, Low Dose beyond period of Unfractionated Heparin or immobilization or acute Fondaparinux for patients hospital stay with high risk for thrombosis Optimal use of mechanical thromboprophylaxis with GCS  The use of pharmacologic or IPC for patients with prophylaxis or mechanical contraindications to prophylaxis in patients at low anticoagulant thromboprophylaxis risk of thrombosis
  • 10. Other Nonsurgical Patient Recommendations 10Critically-Ill Outpatients with Cancer  Recommend against routine Low-Molecular Weight prophylaxis with LMWH or Heparins or Low dose LDUH if no additional risk Unfractionated Heparin factors is suggested  Recommended for patients with solid tumors who have additional risk factors Mechanical prophylaxis with GCS or IPC for those who are at high  Recommend against use of risk for major bleeding vitamin K antagonists until bleeding risk (Warfarin) for prophylaxis decreases

  • 14. Additional Considerations 14 Low-Molecular Weight Heparins (Enoxaparin)  Start 12 or more hours preoperatively OR 12 hours or more postoperatively Guidelines suggest to extend prophylaxis in the outpatient period for up to 35 days from the date of surgery Guidelines Suggest using dual prophylaxis with an antithrombotic agent AND an IPCD during hospital stay Therapy is not recommended in patients undergoing knee arthroscopy

  • 25. IMPORTANT DRUG INTERACTIONS 25 Medications that increase bleeding risk  SSRI’s and SNRIs  Medications for pain (NSAIDs, Willow Bark)  Kava Kava may impair blood clotting due to effects on the liver Medications that alter metabolism  Barbiturates, such as phenobarbital, may induce metabolism of heparins, decreasing effect  Carbamazepine/oxcarbamezapine and St. John’s Wort induce metabolism of warfarin and apixaban by inducing 3A4 and 2C9 Bad habits  Smoking induces metabolism  Alcohol increasing bleeding risk
