Based on international guidelines published in 2013, this app is a practical, step-by-step guide for the prophylaxis and treatment of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer, including:
• Prophylaxis in hospitalized and ambulatory patients
• Treatment guidance for both non-catheter and catheter-related VTE
• Specific guidance related to various cancer and treatment types
• Early, short-term, and long-term treatment guidance

This treatment algorithm is intended for physicians and other healthcare professionals treating patients with cancer. It should not replace clinical judgement. It is based on two clinical practice guidelines published in 2013:
1. Farge D, Debourdeau P, Beckers M, Baglin C, Bauersachs RM, Brenner B, Brilhante D, Falanga A, Gerotzafias GT, Haim N, Kakkar AK, Khorana AA, Lecumberri R, Mandala M, Marty M, Monreal M, Mousa SA, Noble S, Pabinger I, Prandoni P, Prins MH, Qari MH, Streiff MB, Syrigos K, Bounameaux H, Büller HR. International clinical practice guidelines for the treatment and prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer. J Thromb Haemost. 2013;11(1):56-70.
2. Debourdeau P, Farge D, Beckers M, Baglin C, Bauersachs RM, Brenner B, Brilhante D, Falanga A, Gerotzafias GT, Haim N, Kakkar AK, Khorana AA, Lecumberri R, Mandala M, Marty M, Monreal M, Mousa SA, Noble S, Pabinger I, Prandoni P, Prins MH, Qari MH, Streiff MB, Syrigos K, Büller HR, Bounameaux H. International clinical practice guidelines for the treatment and prophylaxis of thrombosis associated with central venous catheters in patients with cancer. J Thromb Haemost. 2013;11(1):71-80.

While these guidelines rely on the best available evidence at the time of publication, the clinician is advised to use clinical judgement when making decisions about prophylaxis and treatment of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer.
