- What is the clinical evidence regarding length of surgery and compression device usage for the application of compression or pneumatic stockings in the prevention of post-operative deep vein thrombosis?
- What is the clinical evidence on perioperative use of compression or pneumatic stockings to prevent deep vein thrombosis following surgery?
- What are the evidence-based guidelines regarding the perioperative use of compression or pneumatic stockings?
Eleven systematic reviews, five randomized controlled trials, and six non-randomized studies were identified regarding the perioperative use of compression or pneumatic stockings. Additionally, five evidence-based guidelines were identified.
