abstract

  • Postoperative anticoagulation choice has no statistically significant effect on the incidence of free flap complications, including bleeding, thromboembolism, and flap loss. We conclude that aspirin or LMWH therapy demonstrates equivalent outcomes when used as single-agent postoperative anticoagulation in oncologic free flap reconstruction.
