This chapter provides an overview of existing evidence in relation to the management of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in non-malignant diseases or noncancer diagnoses. Diagnosis of VTE in non-malignant disease can be challenging as the clinical features of the condition, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or stroke with concurrent pneumonia, may mimic or obscure symptoms of pulmonary embolism. Many non-malignant conditions including heart failure and renal failure are associated with an increased risk of bleeding with anticoagulation.

Keywords:   VTE, non-malignant disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, stroke, pulmonary embolism, diagnosis, heart failure, renal failure, bleeding, anticoagulation
