Abstract

Mechanical thromboprophylaxis is an important part of hospital prevention of venous thromboembolism. It comprises graduated compression stockings and intermittent pneumatic compression. In this review, we summarize its physiological effect on venous hemodynamics, recent clinical studies that offer contrasting results, and discuss its utility in contemporary clinical practice. Mechanical thromboprophylaxis is currently suggested in patients at high thrombotic and hemorrhagic risk, favoring intermittent pneumatic compression, but does not seem useful in addition to pharmacological thromboprophylaxis.
