Alejandro Lazo-Langner in his oral presentation discussed the development of a clinical prediction model for Venous Thromboembolism in acute leukemia patients. These and other updates on the developments regarding VTE, but also platelet defects, thrombosis and the effects on pregnancy are covered in this chapter.
