In which surgeries do you take embolic preventative measures?

For all patients undergoing general anaesthetic preventative measures are applied. These may range from thromboembolic stockings through the peri and postoperative phase to flowtron boots while in theatre. It is uncommon to require additional preventative measures but occasionally may be required depending on your past medical history.
