SESSION TITLE: Pulmonary Vascular Disease - PE/DVT
SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster
PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM
PURPOSE: Perioperative orthopedic patients are at high risk for both venous thromboembolic (VTE) and non-VTE related clinical complications. Identifying a non-PE diagnosis to explain clinical decompensation may not adequately exclude a concurrent thromboembolic event in this specific population.
