ASA and its journal, Anesthesiology, announce the 24th annual Journal Symposium to be held at the ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2016 annual meeting in Chicago on the topic “Coagulation 2016: New Data and New Drugs – Perioperative Considerations.”
Moderators: Jerrold H. Levy, M.D., FAHA, FCCM, Professor of Anesthesiology, Duke University School of Medicine, and Michael J. Avram, Ph.D., Professor of Anesthesiology, Northwestern University School of Medicine.
Topics and Speakers:
In a perioperative setting, managing bleeding and coagulopathy are critical for clinicians. Perioperative bleeding is due to multiple causes, including fibrinolysis, activation of inflammatory pathways, consumption of coagulation factors, dilutional changes and other factors. Additionally, an increasingly frequent cause of bleeding is the perioperative use of anticoagulation and antiplatelet agents that until recently have no well-established reversal methods. New direct-acting oral anticoagulants are frequently utilized for management of both venous thromboembolic prophylaxis and therapy as well as stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation. As a result, new data and therapeutic approaches have emerged for understanding critical aspects of clot formation for hemostasis; management of perioperative anticoagulation, especially for regional anesthesia; and specific antidotes for the novel anticoagulants.
