Case StudiesVenous Thromboembolism in Pediatric Orthopaedic Patients Case ReviewBishop, Courtney MPAS, PA-C1Author Information 1Department of Orthopaedics, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio Disclosure: The Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest forms are provided with the online version of the article (http://links.lww.com/JBJSJOPA/A93). JBJS Journal of Orthopaedics for Physician Assistants: January-March 2020 - Volume 8 - Issue 1 - p e0023 doi: 10.2106/JBJS.JOPA.19.00023 Metrics Abstract Individuals who sustain orthopaedic trauma may have an increased risk of developing a deep vein thrombosis in an injured extremity. Venous thromboembolisms (VTEs) occur rarely in the ambulatory pediatric population; however, morbidity and mortality are significant; therefore, awareness of risk factors and signs and symptoms by providers is imperative. There is limited evidence to support prophylaxis for VTE in the pediatric population, and no current guidelines exist for VTE prophylaxis in pediatric orthopaedic patients.
