Surgical Patients with IBD at Greater Risk for Blood Clots

Posted by: admin on: November 22, 2011

The incidence of DVT, PE, stroke and myocardial infarction within 30 days of surgery are higher in patients with IBD compared to other patients.


Patients with inflammatory bowel disease are at greater risk for postoperative deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, according to a study.

According to the study, patients with IBD have historically been known to develop thromboembolic complications. However, current guidelines for DVT and PE prophylaxis do not mention patients with IBD.

The researchers found that IBD was a risk factor for blood clots, but found no increased risk among patients with IBD for postoperative myocardial infarction or stroke
