Program Description

This state-of-the-science Webinar detailed disseminated information related to the diagnosis and management of vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) post-vaccination. The Webinar featured a leading expert in the area of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) who provided an overview of this emerging HIT-like disorder, as well as the most recent information regarding its background, diagnosis, and clinical management. The presentation was followed by a brief Q & A with the audience. Due to time constraints, Dr. Arepally did not respond to all of the questions submitted during the webinar.
