abstract

  • To our knowledge, this is the first study on the incidence of thromboembolic events after nephrectomy. Thromboembolic events are rare but are more likely to occur in patients with coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmia, prior DVT, Stage 3 or 4 tumors, or a large estimated blood loss.
