BACKGROUND CONTEXT Various surgical factors affect the incidence of postoperative medical complications following elective spinal arthrodesis. Because of the inter-relatedness of these factors, it is difficult for clinicians to accurately risk-stratify individual patients.

INTRODUCTION Trauma patients exhibit a complex coagulopathy which is not fully understood and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) rates remain high.

We hypothesized that acute EtOH intoxication would produce a relative hypocoagulable state as measured by(More)
