Aim: Injuries to prevent DVT. Incidence of deep venous thrombosis in traumatic spinal injury patients and effect of prophylaxis for deep venous thrombosis in traumatic spinal cord injury patients in a tertiary care hospital in Indian setting.
Objectives: To identify the risk factors for DVT in traumatic spinal cord injury patients in a tertiary care hospital in Indian.
Conclusion: These results suggest that active measures for prevention are important beginning from the acute stage of injury and pharmacological thromboprophylaxis can be considered for all patients with acute spinal cord injury patients unless there is not ongoing bleeding or severe coagulopathy.
