Case description

Abdullah Hanoun. The video includes a poll with three questions to test the audience's understanding of the topic.

- Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) occurs due to a triad of factors including increased coagulation, stasis of blood flow, and vessel wall injury.

- The triad is checked before any surgery to reduce the risk of VTE.

- There are two pathways that lead to clotting, intrinsic and extrinsic, which can be checked using aPTT and PT/INR.

- The degradation product of fibrin, D-dimer, is used to check for the presence of a clot.
