Abstract

Antiphospholipid antibody positive patients are at risk for venous and arterial thrombosis. The risk of recurrent thromboembolism is high. Although the standard of care is high-intensity warfarin after a thromboembolic event, some studies indicate that this degree of anticoagulation is not needed. There is an urgent need of clinical trials to address management of thrombosis in antiphospholipid syndrome.
