World Thrombosis Day - 13 October

World Thrombosis Day

Boston Scientific is supporting World Thrombosis Day which takes place every year on 13 October, the birthday of Rudolf Virchow who was a pioneer in the pathophysiology of thrombosis. A German physician, pathologist, biologist and anthropologist, Virchow
developed the concept of "thrombosis" and advanced our understanding of this condition. 

In Boston Scientific we are committed to provide solutions for effective Venous thromboembolism (VTE) treatment and with our venous portfolio we are helping health care professionals in every day practice to treat more patients suffering from VTE.

Professor Houman Jalaie (Germany) and Professor Mert Dumantepe (Turkey) share their experiences in treatment of patients suffering from Acute and Chronic Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). In these two brief interviews they highlight a scale of the problem, its challenges, causes, providing some guidelines in how to advance care of VTE patients.
