Antithrombotic prophylaxis reduces the rate of postoperative thromboembolic complications, and consensus guidelines strongly recommend its use [3]. Despite the use of effective prophylaxis, however, many patients who have joint arthroplasty still develop asymptomatic deep venous thrombosis that can be reliably detected only with screening tests [1, 3]. Concern about the potential… CONTINUE READING
