We evaluated the ability of intermittent external pneumatic calf compression to prevent deep venous thrombosis after subarachnoid hemorrhage from ruptured intracranial aneurysms. Fifty-six subarachnoid hemorrhage patients not given external pneumatic calf compression were compared with 90 patients who had calf compression after their subarachnoid hemorrhages. Both groups of patients were on strict bedrest for 7 to 21 days after aneurysm rupture, and both received epsilon-aminocaproic acid, 30… CONTINUE READING
