International Consensus Meeting Recommendations on Thromboembolism
May 16, 2022
The International Consensus Meeting (ICM) convened a group of experts from around the globe to generate venous thromboembolism guidelines or recommendations that address real-world issues. Delegates from 135 international societies, 68 countries, and various specialties, including anesthesia, cardiology, hematology, internal medicine, and orthopaedics, were invited to comb through the literature in a systematic review format and to create practical recommendations related to all subspecialities in orthopedics that would also have global applications. This immense initiative engaged nearly 600 experts who followed the strict Delphi process, as in prior ICM activities, to generate the monumental collection presented below.
ASRA Pain Medicine's Board of Directors voted to endorse these guidelines at its June 2022 meeting.
