Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common cause of postoperative morbidity and mortality that can be prevented effectively with well established, hospitalbased prevention strategies. VTE prophylaxis should be considered for all hospitalized patients, although not all surgical patients will ultimately receive it based on their risk factor profile. This article discusses the extent of VTE and provides guidance for appropriate pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic strategies for prophylaxis in surgical patients.
