Continuing out-of-hospital prophylaxis following major orthopaedic surgery: what now?

, : Continuing out-of-hospital prophylaxis following major orthopaedic surgery: what now?. Haemostasis 30 Suppl 2: 101-5; Discussion 82-3

Post-surgical deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is often underdiagnosed by clinical assessment alone. Subclinical DVT is a major source of pulmonary embolism, which is an important cause of death, particularly following total hip replacement surgery. Results from pathophysiological studies and recently conducted, prospective double-blind venographic studies in Europe and North America suggest that, in patients undergoing total hip replacement surgery, thromboprophylaxis with a low-molecular-weight heparin should be continued for at least 5 weeks post-operatively to minimize this serious complication.

Drug resistance and distribution of R plasmids in 1834 faecal E. coli strains isolated from calves and pigs in Japan in 1976 were investigated; 68.8% of bovine and 89.9% of porcine isolates were resistant to one or more of the growth promoters use...

In Experiment 1, heifers were randomly allocated to a control group (saline, im; n = 6) or a GnRH group (100 mu-g, im; n = 6). Treatment was given approximately 32 h before ovulation. The GnRH treatment shortened (P lt 0.001) the time from treatme...

The 180-kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen (BPAG2) is a candidate gene/protein for mutations in some forms of junctional epidermolysis bullosa. In this study, we searched for mutations in BPAG2 in a large Austrian pedigree with generalized atrophic be...
