Özet

Background: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a potentially preventable and costly complication after total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The in-hospital incidence and economic burden of VTE following total joint arthroplasty (TJA) in the United States is unknown. The aim of this study was to examine this issue.
