Venous thromboembolic (VTE) disease is a continuing global health burden with serious mortality, morbidity, and health economic consequences. The one year case fatality rate of definite or probable VTE has been estimated at 23%. Approximately 1 to 2 of every 1000 adults in the worldwide
population will be diagnosed with VTE annually, with higher
incidence rates in those over 70 and over 80. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published an updated version of management of VTE. This article summarises the new key recommendations, with a focus on those most relevant to primary care and secondary generalist physicians, and includes existing 2012 or 2015 recommendations that have not been updated where they are relevant to the topic discussed.
