The efficacy of traditional anticoagulants in preventing VTE in patients undergoing major orthopedic surgery and in hospitalized acutely ill medical patients is well established [5, 8-11].
Primary VTE Prevention after Major Orthopedic Surgery. Te use of dabigatran etexilate as a VTE prophylactic agent in major orthopedic surgery was evaluated in four phase III randomized, double-blind, noninferiority studies, the RE-MOBILIZE, REMODEL, RE-NOVATE, and RENOVATE II trials.
Patients undergoing major orthopedic surgery are at increased risk of developing a dangerous blood clot that blocks veins, which is known as venous thromboembolism (VTE).
The favourable benefit-to-risk profile observed with semuloparin compared to enoxaparin in the classic major orthopedic surgery model supports the further evaluation of semuloparin as VTE preventative therapy in other areas including oncology, as VTE is a known complication in patients with cancer.
PP113: Is thromboprophylaxis required among patients with hemophilia undergoing major orthopedic surgery: Combining epidemiological studies and survey results within the ADVANCE Working Group
Surgical procedures associated with the highest bleeding risk include coronary artery bypass and valve procedures, intracranial and spinal surgery, major vascular surgery, major orthopedic surgery, major cancer surgery, and prostate and bladder surgery.
LIXIANA was approved in Japan in April 2011, for the prevention of VTE after major orthopedic surgery and was launched in July 2011.
Combined intrathecal and Epidural Magnesium sulfate supplementation of spinal anesthesia to reduce postoperative analgesic Requirements: A prospective, Randomized, double blind, Controlled Trial in patients undergoing major orthopedic surgery Acta Anaesthesiol Scand 2007; 51: 482-9.
Fondaparinux has been tested for the prophylaxis of major orthopedic surgery. In a metaanalysis of over 7,000 patients, there was greater than 50% risk reduction when fondaparinux was begun 6 hours after surgery, compared with LMWH begun 12-24 hours after surgery.
The incidence of objectively confirmed deep venous thrombosis in hospitalized patients is at least 10% in general medical and surgical patients and as high as 60% after major orthopedic surgery. Preventive interventions such as thromboembolism prevention are becoming a focus of national quality improvement measures because of the large potential reduction in morbidity and mortality.
