VAZQUEZ, Fernando J et al. Recomendaciones actualizadas para profilaxis de la enfermedad tromboembólica venosa en Argentina. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2020, vol.80, n.1, pp.69-80. ISSN 0025-7680.

Venous thromboembolic disease (VTE) in hospitalized adults has high morbidity and mortality, is the origin of chronic complications and increased cost for the health system. Since the publication of recommendations for thromboprophylaxis in hospitalized patients in 2013, new alternatives and strategies have emerged, which motivated us to update our recommendations. Although there are different consensus and clinical practice guidelines, adherence to them is suboptimal. The different therapeutic alternatives for hospitalized adult patients (non-surgical, surgical non-orthopedic, with and without cancer, orthopedic an d pregnant) have been updated, paying particular attention to the drugs available in Argentina.
