Deep venous thrombosis after knee arthroscopy: A meta-analysis

Ilahi and colleagues (June 2005)1 reported a pooled deep venous thrombosis (DVT) incidence rate of 9.4% after knee arthroscopy. After adjusting for sensitivity discrepancies between ultrasound and venography, the calculated incidence reaches 9.9%. The authors give venographically diagnosed DVT a 2-f...

Sumario:Ilahi and colleagues (June 2005)1 reported a pooled deep venous thrombosis (DVT) incidence rate of 9.4% after knee arthroscopy. After adjusting for sensitivity discrepancies between ultrasound and venography, the calculated incidence reaches 9.9%. The authors give venographically diagnosed DVT a 2-fold weight over ultrasonographically diagnosed DVT. As reported, evidence shows an almost 100% sensitivity for venography in contrast to 50% for ultrasound in detecting DVT in asymptomatic patients.
