Impact of operative time on early joint infection and deep vein thrombosis in primary total hip arthroplasty

Impact of operative time on early joint infection and deep vein thrombosis in primary total hip... PurposeInfections and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after total hip arthroplasty (THA) are challenging problems for both the patient and surgeon. Previous studies have identified numerous risk factors for infections and DVT after THA but have often been limited by sample size. We aimed to evaluate the effect of operative time on early postoperative infection as well as DVT rates following THA. We hypothesized that an increase in operative time would result in increased odds of acquiring an infection as well as a DVT. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery & Research Elsevier

Abstract

PurposeInfections and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after total hip arthroplasty (THA) are challenging problems for both the patient and surgeon. Previous studies have identified numerous risk factors for infections and DVT after THA but have often been limited by sample size. We aimed to evaluate the effect of operative time on early postoperative infection as well as DVT rates following THA. We hypothesized that an increase in operative time would result in increased odds of acquiring an infection as well as a DVT.
