ASSESSING THE HEMATOLOGIC COMPLICATIONS IN SUBJECTS UNDERGOING VARIOUS ORTHOPEDIC SURGERIES: A PROSPECTIVE CLINICAL STUDY
European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,
2022, Volume 9, Issue 3, Pages 2947-2951
AbstractBackground: Postoperative complications seen following orthopedic surgeries are
commonly the hemotologic complications encountered globally.
Aims: The presentretrospective clinical study was conducted to assess the various
postoperative hematologic complication seen in the subjects following orthopedic surgery.
Materials& Methods: In 78 subjects who underwent orthopedic surgery medical records
were assessed including transfusion details. The collected data were subjected to statistical
evaluation and the results were formulated.
Results: Coded strokes were seen in 3.84% (n=3) subjects, blood transfusion was done in
6.41% (n=5) study subjects following surgery, major bleeding following orthopedic surgeries
were seen in 24.35% (n=19) subjects, and myocardial necrosis in 2.56% (n=2) study subjects.
Other minor complications seen were seen in the 1.28% (n=1) subject. Total complications
reported in study subjects were in 37.17% (n=29) study subjects
Conclusion: The present study concludes that the prevalence of hematologic complications
in subjects undergoing orthopedic surgeries is high. However, more studies prospectively are
needed to reach a definitive conclusion.
