Improving Outcomes in Patients at Risk for Venous Thromboembolism Following Total Knee and Total Hip Replacement: Implications for Managed Care

The information presented in this supplement to The American Journal of Managed Care is based upon the conclusions and insights derived from a roundtable discussion, which identified means of overcoming barriers to improved outcomes for patients who have undergone surgery for total knee replacement (TKR) or total hip replacement (THR), and who are, consequently, at risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE). The diversity of the assembled healthcare professionals allowed for a wide-ranging discussion of clinical, institutional, and systemic approaches.

The roundtable and this publication were funded by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; which included honoraria paid to the faculty members.
