Peri – Operative Causes of DVT

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a condition in which a blood clot forms most often in the deep veins of the leg, groin or arm (known as deep vein thrombosis, DVT) and travels in the circulation, lodging in the lungs (known as pulmonary embolism, PE).

Without prophylaxis, 40 – 80% of high-risk patients develop detectable DVT.
