Cardiovascular Thrombosis Program

Within the Cardiology Division at NYU Langone Medical Center, the Cardiovascular Thrombosis Program provides evaluation and treatment for patients with clotting disorders. Comprehensive care, using the latest research available, is provided for patients with inherited clotting disorders and their families.

A thrombosis is an excessive or dangerous blood clot that develops in the body. If one develops a blood clot, many questions arise about why it occurred, if it will happen again, and how to prevent it from reoccurring.

The NYU Cardiovascular Thrombosis Program provides a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and management of patients with a variety of thrombotic disorders.  Disorders of particular interest to NYU Cardiovascular Thrombosis Program investigators include platelet hyperreactivity (sticky platelet syndrome), heparin induced thrombocytopenia, hypercoagulable conditions, and other complex thrombotic disorders. The program offers assistance in thromboembolism management, peri-operative anticoagulation, and oral anticoagulation management. Additionally, the program offers guidance for management of antiplatelet therapies; platelet testing and genetic testing is used to help guide use of antiplatelet strategies.

Research activities in the NYU Cardiovascular Thrombosis Program cover a broad spectrum of investigative endeavors, ranging from basic scientific studies to translational research and clinical trials. Successful research programs frequently include collaborations between investigators, clinicians, statisticians, and other individuals from different Divisions and Departments within NYU, as well as with collaborators from other institutions.

In addition, facilities such as the Cardiovascular Clinical Research Center, the Cardiovascular Genetics Program, the Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease, and the Vascular Biology and Disease Program provide scientific expertise and collaborative opportunities. This environment has proven quite fruitful for active research programs, and forms a basis of learning opportunities for our trainees.
