Activity Description and Educational Objectives
In this activity, expert clinicians offer their insight on recent journal publications, with a focus on new evidence and guidelines for the management of veno-occlusive disease/sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (VOD/SOS) that feature new approaches to assessing risk factors, diagnostic criteria, and determining disease severity in both adult and pediatric populations. Topics to be discussed include the clinical use of recent consensus statements, the potential for new criteria to capture challenging VOD/SOS presentations, and how these elements can be integrated into an overall management plan that incorporates newly available treatments for VOD/SOS in the post-transplant setting, including disease that presents with multi-organ dysfunction.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
  • Summarize new evidence and guidelines on risk factors, diagnosis, and assessment of disease severity for VOD/SOS
  • Confirm a diagnosis of VOD/SOS, including late-onset VOD/SOS or disease with or without multi-organ dysfunction in adult and pediatric populations
  • Select appropriate, timely treatment for patients with confirmed VOD/SOS, including those with evidence of multi-system organ dysfunction
Target Audience
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologist-oncologists, oncologists, bone marrow transplant specialists, and other clinicians involved in the management of VOD/SOS.
