Therapy of venous thromboembolism
Regarding the therapy of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, a couple of new medications have been in the recent years introduced on the market. These, so called „new oral Anticoagulants“ have revolutionized the therapy of venous thromboembolism. Since Univ.-Prof. Baghestanian has been a Principal Investigator (scientific Leader) of many international cilnical studies with anticoagulant drugs, he has a great experience with these substances even before they are introduced on the market. Thus, he is one of the leading specialists in Austria in the field of Deep Vein Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism and their therapy with the new oral anticoagulants.
