Kalava A et al. – The authors recommend that patients who are elderly and at high risk of thromboembolism should selectively undergo a preoperative doppler ultrasound for deep venous thrombosis. Also, selective application of tourniquet in the upper limb, to monitor for seizure ctivity, would reduce the incidence of pulmonary thrombo–embolism as embolic events are significantly less from deep venous thromboses of upper extremities when compared to lower extremities.
