Treatment of pediatric venous thromboembolism has been revolutionized with approval of dabigatran and rivaroxaban. Susanne Holzhauer, M.D., presents the efficacy and safety of direct oral anticoagulants in a large, heterogenous pediatric population for children across different risk profiles. Discussion of a multicenter prospective observational cohort focused on outcomes of thrombus progression/recurrence and bleeding. Importance of real-world data collection to assist with patient identification for dose adjustments of groups that are at risk of worse outcomes is discussed.
