The commonest joint replacement performed around the world as well as in Prince Sultan Military Medical City (PSMMC) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is total knee joint replacement (TKR).

Methods: This was a retrospective study conducted at the Department of Orthopedic Surgery in PSMMC. Data on arthroplasties performed during June 2012 until June 2014 were retrieved. A total of 181 patients who had undergone TKR (unilateral = 94; bilateral = 87) for knee arthritis were included in the study. The patients had undergone primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) using a mechanical compressive device and had received pharmaceutical prophylaxis. Color Doppler ultrasonography was performed for the bilateral common femoral veins, superficial veins, popliteal veins, and calf veins by a skilled radiologist for all symptomatic (VTE symptoms) patients. Lower-extremity venography dynamic computed tomography was performed for patients suspected of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE).
