Post-surgical care is of utmost importance for patients recovering from surgical procedures. It plays a crucial role in ensuring proper healing, managing potential complications, and facilitating the patient’s overall recovery.
Globally, 310 million major surgeries are performed each year. It is estimated that up to 15% will have serious postoperative morbidity. An annual global mortality of around 8 million patients places major surgery. Therefore, seeking to reduce preventable deaths and post-surgical complications would save millions of lives and billions of dollars in healthcare costs.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) which includes Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism is a common complication after surgical procedures because of prolonged bed rest and immobility. VTE refers to blood clots in the veins. It is an underdiagnosed and dangerous yet preventable medical condition that can cause disability and death.
Why is VTE prevention important?
- Blood clots are a leading cause of preventable hospital death
- VTE is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in general surgical patients
- Roughly 1 out of 10 hospital deaths are related to blood clots in the lungs
- About half of all blood clots occur within 3 months of a hospital stay or surgery
- Nearly half of all hospital patients do not receive proper prevention measures
- VTE treatment is associated with prolonged and recurring hospital stays and treatment, causing a significant burden to patients and healthcare systems
