OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) in preventing deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) after total hip and knee replacement (THR, TKR). METHODS From November 1997 to March 1999, we performed total joint replacement for 47 control patients (34 knees, 28 hips) and for 31 patients (19 knees, 17 hips) who had been given low-molecular-weight heparin for preventing deep-vein thrombosis. All patients received venography of the operated limbs after operation… Expand

Low molecular weight heparin for the prevention of deep venous thrombosis after total knee arthroplasty: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
The meta-analysis demonstrated that LMWH is obviously efficacious in the prophylaxis of DVT after TKA, however, it has some negative effects, such as the increase in the number of bleeding events and the total blood transfused. Expand
