From July 8–13, Berlin formed the background for the 2017 annual meeting of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis. During the congress, thousands of the world’s leading experts on thrombosis, haemostasis and vascular biology came together to present the most recent advances, exchange the latest science and discuss the newest clinical applications designed to improve patient care. In this summary, some of the key studies presented at the meeting will be discussed. For a more complete coverage of the meeting, we happily refer to the congress website:
