AAOS guidelines for prophylaxis of thromboembolic events minimize adverse outcomes

September 16, 2014

Use of the first-generation American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons guidelines gave rise to low incidence of clinically important thromboembolic events in total hip and total knee arthroplasty patients and effectively minimized adverse outcomes, according to study results.

Researchers analyzed data on age, sex, body mass index, American Society for Anesthesiologists classification, and a personal or family history of blood clots requiring long-term warfarin among 3,289 patients managed with total hip or total knee arthroplasty (THA, TKA). Data were also analyzed on a personal history of a malignant tumor, bleeding disorder, gastrointestinal bleeding or a hemorrhagic cerebrovascular accident.
