Aspirin for TKR?

Aspirin for TKR?
Oct 23, 2018 11:43am

Thanks to Dave McGlasson for sending Aspirin, Anticoagulants Similarly Prevent VTE After TKA from MPR Publications. I've lately been hearing anecdotes of patients being prescribed aspirin after total hip or knee replacement, and I know of one person, a hemostasis expert, who was prescribed no antithrombotic therapy subsequent to TKRs on both knees with no adverse effects. I'm curious about these changes and invite comments about your experiences or experiences of your acquaintances or patients. Is aspirin safe? Is it safe to go without any antithrombotics?
