Thrombosis Prevention in Arthroscopic Reconstruction of Anterior Cruciate Ligament


Results of dabigatrana etexilat (Pradaxa) use for venous thrombosis prevention after anterior cruciate ligament arthroscopic reconstruction are presented. It is shown that after this type of surgical intervention patients are at risk of thromboembolic complications development. Intake if Pradaxa tablets in dose 220 mg daily for 10 days after surgery enables to avoid thrombosis of lower extremity veins.
