Welcome to the website of the First European Spring School on the Science and Practice of Venous Thromboembolism.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is the third most frequent cardiovascular disease. It has an annual incidence of over 100 cases per 100,000 population and is responsible for approximately 12% of all deaths in European countries each year.

For decades, poor knowledge of the pathogenesis of VTE, and of an individual’s risk of developing the disease, resulted in inadequate prophylaxis both in the surgical and the medical setting. Moreover, underdiagnosis and undertreatment of VTE was frequent in clinical practice, leading to unacceptably high case fatality rates. At the same time, treatment-associated bleeding events posed an additional threat to the patients’ health and a heavy burden on health care systems. Recently, major advances in our understanding of the pathomechanisms of thrombosis, combined with improved imaging modalities and the introduction of new anticoagulant drugs (along with better dosing and monitoring of established anticoagulants), have begun to translate into more effective preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.

The purpose of this European Spring School is to provide interested early career scientists and physicians across a broad spectrum of medical disciplines with a comprehensive overview of what is, at present, the state of the art in the rapidly evolving science and practice of venous thromboembolism. In a relaxed atmosphere at the Sithonia peninsula in Chalkidiki, Northern Greece, with one of the most beautiful landscapes on the Mediterranean coast, the participants will have the opportunity to benefit from interactive seminars and workshops moderated by renowned European experts and leaders in the field. The educational activities of the School will be accompanied by a social and cultural programme and by adequate time for relaxing. Last but not least, the Spring School will offer a unique opportunity for networking, and for discussing future areas of research and collaboration projects.
