Current BOFAS position statement on VTE prophylaxis in foot and ankle surgery

20 April 2010

Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is widely considered to be a precursor of pulmonary embolus and a risk factor for post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) and pulmonary hypertension (PHT). There is a potential increased risk of DVT and VTE events around the time of lower limb surgery. However, the incidence of DVT and its sequelae is poorly documented.
