Phlebitis (inflammation of the veins of the legs) or Deep Vein Thrombosis
How does it work?
(DVT), which refers to blood clotting in the veins of the leg, is a possible risk after total joint replacement surgery. For the prevention of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) after surgery, many patients will be prescribed an oral anticoagulant. The purpose of an oral anticoagulant is to prevent your blood from clotting. The Knee Replacement Surgery Anticoagulation Therapy mobile app covers type of medications, Testing for Deep Vein Thrombosis to monitor Coumadin® usage, Special Tests to Evaluate Deep Vein Thrombosis (Blood Clotting), and The Ultrasound Doppler Test.
