Hi Ken, Are you speaking about pre-op, intra-op or post-op prevention of DVTs? I'm not aware that they are administered as part of an epidural.

Greetings All, I have a patron who is seeking academic and evidence-based research sources and articles pertaining to the "risks versus benefits of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) prevention versus epidural usage in a surgical patient". Have searched Cochrane's, OVID, EBSCO databases and even, as a last resort, Google. Basically, requesting assistance regarding which direction to take, perhaps different vocuabulary, also, am still searching other databases especially the various evidence-based sources. Your assistance is gratefully appreciated and thanks to all.
