Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate factors associated with post-discharge Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) within 30-days of hip fracture surgery. Method: 96,870 cases with acute hip fractures were identified from a national retrospective database. We only included patients who received intramedullary nail fixation, extramedullary implant fixation, or hemiarthroplasty. Results: Factors associated with post-discharge VTE include age above 75, 5-item modified frailty index ≥ 0.6, COPD, dyspnea, disseminated cancer, chronic steroid use, intramedullary nailing, medical co-management, and pathological fractures. Conclusion: The current study suggests specific factors independently associated with postdischarge VTE following hip fracture.
