2nd Italian inter-society consensus statement on antithrombotic prophylaxis in orthopaedics and traumatology
Anticoagulant prophylaxis for preventing VTE is a worldwide established procedure in hip and knee replacement surgery, as well as in the treatment of femoral neck fractures, but few data exist in other fields of orthopaedics and traumatology. Thus no guidelines or recommendations are available in the literature except for a limited number of weak statements about knee arthroscopy and lower limb fractures. In any case, none of them is a multidisciplinary effort as the one here presented. The Italian Society for Studies on Haemostasis and Thrombosis (SISET), the Italian Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (SIOT), the association of Orthopaedic Traumatology of Italian Hospitals (OTODI) together with the Italian Society of Anesthesia, Analgesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care (SIAARTI) and the Italian Society of General Medicine (SIMG) have set down easy and quick suggestions for VTE prophylaxis in a number of surgical conditions for which only scarce evidence is available. This inter-society consensus statement aims at simplifying the approach to VTE prophylaxis in the single patient with the goal to foster its clinical application. This statement is therefore addressed to the Italian scientific community and institutions with the aim of attaining good clinical practice in the profession. The present statement will be published in the “Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology”,” Lo Scalpello” and in the websites of the Societies participating this consensus (OTODI, SIAARTI, SIMG, SIOT, SISET). It will be submitted to Minerva Anestesiologica.
