DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS RATES AFTER MAJOR LOWER LIMB ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY IN PAKISTAN: PROSPECTIVE STUDY DESIGN.

  • Dr. Ismat Riyaz Khalid

Abstract

Objective: In this study, we aimed to investigate the incidence and risk factors of DVT related to hip arthroscopic surgery.
Design: prospective study
Setting: ………………………………………………….
Patient(s): enrolled 69 consecutive patients who underwent hip arthroscopic surgery between September 2017 and December 2018.
Method: Clinical diagnosis of DVT was confirmed through ultrasonography performed preoperatively and 3 days postoperatively. Additionally, D-dimer levels were measured preoperatively and on postoperative days 1, 3, and 7.
Main Outcome Measure(s): rates of DVT
Result(s): ten patients (14.49)) were diagnosed with DVT clinically, although all cases were asymptomatic. The mean age of the patients with identified DVT was 62.0 ± 6.1 years; significantly higher than the mean age of the patients without DVT (45.1 ± 1.7 years; P = 0.0188).
Conclusion: The incidence of DVT during hip arthroscopy, investigated by ultrasound, was 14.49 %. From our results, we recommend screening for and treatment of asymptomatic DVT, especially in older patients, during hip arthroscopic surgery.
