OVERVIEW Venous thromboembolism (VTE) in seriously injured patients is a common problem that can potentially lead to substantial morbidity, mortality, and resource expenditure. In fact, patients recovering from trauma have the highest rate of VTE among all subgroups of hospitalized patients. Depending on the patient cohort and diagnostic modality, rates of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) may be as high as 40% and 20%, respectively. Not only is the development of VTE in… CONTINUE READING
