Is there still an avoidable fraction of post-operative thromboembolic complications with heparin prophylaxis ? The results of a case-control surveillance.
A case-control multicenter study was set up in 68 general and specialistic wards in Italian regional hospitals in order to assess whether underuse of heparin prophylaxis may account for at least a fraction of the thromboembolic events still occurring in surgical patients. 100 cases with clinically relevant thromboembolic or hemorrhagic events occurring during hospitalization for major surgery and 200 controls were identified.
Controls were selected among patients not presenting any of the events under study during the same period of observation and were matched with cases for age, sex, and type of surgery.
