BUFFALO, NEW YORK; March 20, 2007-Since March is DVT awareness month, ECMC is hosting its second annual DVT educational symposium. The program is intended to inform the public regarding DVT.

Deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) is a medical condition that occurs when a thrombus (blood clot) forms in one of the large veins, usually in the lower limbs, leading to either partially or completely blocked circulation. It may be caused by a variety of risk factors, including cancer, obesity or restricted mobility due to acute medical illness, stroke, major surgery or respiratory failure. According to the American Heart Association, up to two million Americans are affected annually by DVT, yet most Americans (74%) have little or no awareness of DVT, as claimed by a national survey released by the American Public Health Association (APHA).

This clinic is held in honor of the last Dr. Rakesh Bidani who was the Medical Director of the Internal Medicine Clinic and champion of the Anticoagulation Clinic. He was also an active participant in the development of early interdisciplinary initiatives on DVT prophylaxis and treatment guidelines. The clinic at ECMC includes an educational program on DVT Prophylaxis in the high risk medical and surgical patient, featuring a panel discussion with: Dr. John Fudyma, Chief Medical Officer and Moderator, Dr. Krishanan Ragavendran, Trauma and Surgery, Dr. Mark Anders, Orthopaedic Surgery, Dr. James Czyrny Director of Rehabilitation Medicine, Dr. Ali El-Solh, Pulmonary Medicine, and Dr. Gerald Logue, Hematology and the Anticoagulation Clinic. Inter-Disciplinary Outreach: Featuring a reception and discussion of DVT Awareness and the Interdisciplinary Team Approach to DVT prophylaxis. Internal Medicine Clinic Reception in celebration of Dr. Rakesh Bidani.

The ECMC Corporation includes an advanced academic medical center (ECMC) with 550 inpatient beds and 136 skilled-nursing-home beds, on- and off-campus health centers, over 40 outpatient specialty care clinics and the Erie County Home, a 586-bed skilled nursing facility.
