22123 Upgrading the VOD/SOS Management Tool Kit
Are you up to the challenge of veno-occlusive disease (VOD)/sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS)—a serious complication arising in the aftermath of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation? In addition to life-threatening organ dysfunction in serious cases, VOD presents additional diagnostic and assessment challenges based on its varied onset time and symptomatology. PeerView’s Clinical Consults CME video will help you meet these challenges head-on through a series of case-centric lectures illustrating how modern VOD management techniques can improve outcomes in adult and pediatric patients at risk for this post-transplant complication. Throughout, our expert panelists will highlight the modern tools and evidence that can help capture VOD cases, determine the presence of organ dysfunction, and support the initiation of timely supportive care and pharmacologic treatment.

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologist-oncologists, oncologists, BMT specialists, BMT nurse specialists, and other clinicians involved in the management of VOD.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Describe risk factors for VOD/SOS, updated diagnostic criteria, and clinical markers of disease severity/multiorgan failure
- Confirm a diagnosis of VOD/SOS in adult and pediatric patients, including for individuals presenting with or without organ dysfunction
- Use modern severity grading models to determine the presence of organ dysfunction in patients with a VOD/SOS diagnosis
- Incorporate novel therapies into treatment plans for VOD/SOS, including in the setting of multiorgan dysfunction, based on clinical assessment and current evidence
