Abstract

Objectives: The need and timing of perioperative heparin prophylaxis is matter of debate. The aim of our work is to review the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after radical retro pubic prostatectomy (RRP) in patients undergoing preoperative blood donation, compressive stockings, haemodilution, surgical prevention of lymphocoele and postoperative low molecular weight heparin therapy as prophylaxis for thrombotic events. Methods: This is a retrospective analysis considering a series of 500 RRP performed between1999 and 2006 by the same Surgeon (MGj at the Urological Unit, Desio Hospital, Milan.
