Intl. VTE & Cancer Guidelines

This application is available in English, French, and Spanish. The language of the app will be determined by the language setting of the user’s smartphone.

Based on international guidelines published in 2019, which was developed with methodological support from the Institut National du Cancer (INCa) in France and endorsed by the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH), this app is a practical step-by-step guide for the prophylaxis and treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE: deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), catheter-related thrombosis) in patients with cancer, including:
• Prophylaxis in hospitalized and ambulatory patients
• Recommendations for the treatment of both non-catheter and catheter-related VTE
• Specific recommendations related to various cancer and treatment types
• Recommendations for initial, short-term, and long-term treatment

This treatment algorithm for anticoagulant use (low molecular weight heparins (LMWH), direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC, NOAC), and vitamin K antagonists (VKA)) is intended for physicians and other healthcare professionals treating patients with cancer. It should not replace clinical judgement. It is based on clinical practice guidelines published in 2019:

Lancet Oncol 2019. September 03, 2019 DOI:

While these guidelines rely on the best available evidence at the time of publication, the clinician is advised to use clinical judgement when making decisions about prophylaxis and treatment of cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT).
