This thesis describes the use of thromboprophylatic modalities after total hip and total knee arthroplasty by Dutch orthopedic departments over a period of ten years and several uncertainties regarding thromboprophylaxis in other areas of orthopedic surgery. In this thesis some of these uncertainties are addressed: the incidence of venous thromboembolism after arthroscopic cruciate ligament reconstruction, lower extremity amputation, and shoulder arthroplasty and a case of pulmonary embolism during trial hip plaster cast immobilization.
