This study assessed thrombophilic genotypes, haemostatic and clinical variables as independent risk factors for VTE postarthroplasty. A total number of 569 patients undergoing elective lower limb arthroplasty at a single centre were prospectively studied. All patients were interviewed and had blood samples collected preoperatively… CONTINUE READING
