Elective hip and knee arthroplasty and the effect of rivaroxaban and enoxaparin thromboprophylaxis on wound healing
European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, 04/24/2012Sindali K et al.
The authors' experience with rivaroxaban in elective hip and knee arthroplasty showed no significant difference in the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) or major bleeding. There was, however, a tendency to greater risk of minor bleeding and wound complications that were largely haemorrhagic in nature, which may have reached significance in a larger study.
