Abstract

A comparative study of two groups of patients who underwent endoprosthetic and arthroprosthetic operations showed a satisfactory and statistically significant effect of Heparin prophylaxis in reducing the frequency of pulmonary embolism (0.97 per cent against 8.75 per cent). The frequency of thrombophlebitis was also reduced as a percentage (1.95 per cent against 7.5 per cent) but the figures were not accepted as statistically significant. The frequency of haematoma was almost unchanged in both groups.
