In this episode, Steve Elias, MD meets with Makis Avgerinos (Uni of Pittsburgh, US), Mitchell Silver (Ohio Health, US), John Moriarty (UCLA, US) and Thomas Bernik (Englewood Health, NJ, US) to discuss how deep vein thrombosis (DVT) has become the latest ‘hot topic’ in vascular medicine. Together they unpick how thought processes and available technologies are changing to better treat this disease.
