STUDY DESIGN Thromboembolic disease (TED) after anterior/posterior spinal reconstructions was prospectively evaluated in 66 consecutive patients. OBJECTIVE Determine the incidence of TED after anterior/posterior spinal reconstruction. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Few studies have examined the rate of TED after potentially high-risk combined anterior/posterior reconstructions. Magnetic resonance venography (MRV) is more effective at detecting pelvic deep venous thrombosis (DVT) than… CONTINUE READING
