Device to revolutionize preventive blood clot care after joint replacement surgery
Date:4/6/2010

ding. Major bleeding events are those that require transfusions or additional surgeries. Blood clots in deep veins below the knee formed in 3 percent of patients in both groups, but blood clots in deep veins above the knee formed in 2 percent of patients receiving heparin compared with 1 percent of patients using the mobile device. Clots that occur above the knee are more dangerous, in that these clots are more likely to break off and travel to the lung where they can result in death.

"This study allows us to take the next step which is to test the device in a larger study with an even larger recruitment of number of centers and number of patients to see if in fact we can quite frankly start to use this device for all elective hip replacements, and eventually knee replacements, and get rid of using chemical prophylaxis," Dr. Padgett said. Hospital for Special Surgery will be using the device in the Rapid Recovery total hip replacement protocol for patients who are being discharged within 48 hours.

The mobile device, called the Continuous Enhanced Circulation Therapy plus Synchronized Flow Technology compression device, is manufactured by Medical Compression Systems, located in Or Akiva, Israel. Medical Compression Systems provided some funding for the study.
