Thrombosis occurs in multiple locations. Clinical signs depends on the organ impacted and the location of the thrombus (i.e. venous or arterial). The lecture will cover principles of diagnosis, rule outs and treatments of thrombosis. Specific examples will be used, such as pulmonary thromboembolism, acute aortic thrombo-embolisms in cats and aortic thrombosiss are drugs. Discussion of the following diagnostic tools will ensue: D-Dimers, thromboelastography, coagulation times. This lecture will discuss the use of thrombolytic drugs such as TPA, as well as the use of anti-platelets (e.g. aspirin, clopidogrel) and anti-coagulant drugs (e.g. unfractionated heparin and low-molecular weight heparin). The use of newer anti-coagulant factor Xa antagonists such as apixaban and rivaroxaban will be discussed.

Understand the various hemostatic tests available for diagnosis of thrombosis
That includes specific advantages and disadvantages of diagnosing thrombosis using D-dimers, thromboelastometric devices, coagulation times, platelet count and anti-thrombin level. Be able to provide one specific disease were each of those tests can be used.
