Comments for patients with increased risk of thrombosis

Due to injury and the need to protect or immobilize the area, there is a significantly increased risk of clot formation in the blood system, mainly in the legs.

An additional risk factor for thrombosis formation is having a family history of thrombosis - if this has occurred among your immediate family members, please let us know. You should also inform us if you have already had a thrombosis before or if you smoke or take hormone pills (the "pill").

A clot (thrombosis) in the effected leg can lead to permanent damage of the venous system. Such a clot may also detach from the vein wall and travel to the lungs or even the brain and cause life-threatening complications there.

To prevent these complications, we conduct so-called "thrombosis prophylaxis". This prophylaxis is recommended for those 14 years and older.

This prophylaxis is done by:

1. The wearing of compression hose (if possible wear these hose on both legs daily for 24 hrs. - even at night!)

2. Through motion exercises (move up and down on the ball of your foot several times an hour so that the so-called "calf pump" is activated - we will show you how to do this exercise)

3. Sufficient fluid intake to prevent thickening of the blood (at least 2 liters a day with a body weight of 70kg - even on the day you go home - and of course no alcohol)

4. With the proper positioning of the injured leg - keep your leg consistently raised, avoid sitting with the knees bent too much or the legs hanging down 

If we perform these preventative measures consistently, the formation of a thrombosis is very unlikely but, of course, not to be ruled out. If, however, you have increasing swelling or pain (often a form of muscle soreness) in the calf or thigh of the injured leg or even the uninjured leg or trouble breathing associated with chest pain, this could indicate a thrombosis or embolism. In this case, please contact me immediately (even on weekends or at night). If I can't be reached by telephone, then please call emergency medical services (Tel. 144 - no area code) so that you can be treated by on-duty colleagues or in the surgery department of the Schwaz hospital.

If there are any questions or things you didn't understand, please let us know immediately so that we can clear these up.
