This is a peer to peer discussion on the role of anticoagulation in the setting of cerebral venous thromboembolism.

  • CVT is a rare type of stroke and peripheral venous thromboembolism
  • There is scientific evidence supporting anticoagulation in the acute phase of CVT but scant data to guide longer-term oral anticoagulation
  • Non-vitamin-K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are being investigated as an alternative to warfarin in patients with CVT for longer-term management

This discussion’s audience is for the general neurologists and stroke specialists across Europe, once completed, learners will be able to:

  • Discuss risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT)
  • Explain the design of RE-SPECT CVT trial
  • Analyse outcomes in RE-SPECT CVT trial
