This is a unique international multidisciplinary conference hosting world leaders in the field such as Prof Stavros Konstantinides (author of the European Society of Cardiology Guideline on PE). There will also be debate from Emergency Medicine specialists (Dan Horner/Kerstin Hogg – Manchester region) on topics including thrombolysis in submassive PE; early discharge/ambulatory care of PE, investigation and management of calf vein DVTs and interventional radiology in acute DVT.

The programme is designed to cover all the relevant medical disciplines and to reflect modern management of VTE.
