Abstract

"Venous thromboembolism (VTE) remains a significant risk for all surgical patients, despite validated guidelines. Development of VTE remains a high risk in hospitalized surgical patients, leading to complications in up to 30%. The stratification of patient risk factors and subsequent utilization of a validated prophylaxis and treatment regimen is, therefore, of utmost importance. Familiarity with the current guidelines and recommendations ultimately results in decreased morbidity, mortality, and health care costs. This article discusses the risk factors for developing VTE and management strategies based on the currently available guidelines.".
