Multimodal Thromboprophylaxis in Patients With a History of Venous Thromboembolism Undergoing Primary and Revision Knee Arthroplasty.

HSS J 2022 May 8;18(2):212-218. Epub 2021 Nov 8.

Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY, USA.

Patients with a history of venous thromboembolism (VTE) undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are at a high risk of postoperative VTE. In this high-risk population, we sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy of multimodal thromboprophylaxis. The regimen consisted of discontinuation of procoagulant medications, VTE risk stratification, regional anesthesia, rapid mobilization, perioperative use of pneumatic compression devices, vigorous ankle dorsiflexion during the recovery period, and chemoprophylaxis tailored to the patient's risk of VTE.

High Altitude as a Risk Factor for Venous Thromboembolism in Tibial Plateau Fractures.

Cureus 2022 Apr 22;14(4):e24388. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Emory University, Atlanta, USA.

Background Tibial plateau fractures are often significant injuries that can require complex surgical interventions with prolonged perioperative immobilization, thereby increasing the risk of developing venous thromboembolic (VTE) events, specifically, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Risk stratification is paramount for guiding VTE prophylaxis. Although high altitude has been suggested to create a prothrombotic state, virtually no studies have explored its clinical effects in lower extremity trauma.

Department of Pediatrics, Section of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Patients with cirrhotic liver disease are in a state of fluctuating hemostatic balance. Hepatic synthetic dysfunction is commonly complicated by coagulation disorders that constitute an important parameter of most prognostic scores. The dominant feature of this dysfunction is bleeding tendencies, but cirrhotic patients may also exhibit inappropriate clotting and pro-coagulation placing them at risk for thromboembolism.
