Abstract

Evidence-based recommendations for perioperative prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in plastic surgery are not available yet. The establishment of an algorithm to screen and estimate the procedure-associated risks for thromboembolism is needed. The discussed S3-guidelines of the AWMF Society on the prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism meet these formal requirements. Gathering of evidence-based data and the generation of recommendations leading to a reduction of the perioperative risk of thromboembolic events is a pivotal element to improve patient outcomes and safety in microsurgery.
