Overview:

This case study looks at some of the issues surrounding risk-management of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in surgical patients. The vignette starts with the presentation of a patient with an acute surgical problem and then focuses on measures that need to be considered to reduce the risk of VTE. The case is a real one - where the names and precise circumstances have been changed.
