With World Thrombosis Day now on the horizon, the ISTH is excited to share the online publication of the World Thrombosis Day Burden of Disease paper, titled, “Thrombosis: A Major Contributor to the Global Disease Burden,” authored by the World Thrombosis Day Steering Committee.

While the world’s top two cardiovascular killers – heart attack and stroke – are global health priorities, the No. 3 killer, venous thromboembolism (VTE) or blood clots in the leg and lungs, has remained largely unaddressed and under-recognized by the public, according to this article, the most comprehensive scientific review of the global burden of VTE ever undertaken, and a global public survey.
