Thromboembolic Complications After Total Hip Arthroplasty


Thromboembolic disorders are worrisome complications following total hip arthroplasty, and the best way to address such complications is by prevention. Several regimens have been advocated to decrease the risk of thromboembolic disorders. A combination of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic measures helps reduce the incidence of deep venous thrombosis and, hence, pulmonary embolization.
