Abstract

The efficacy of Rivaroxaban («Xarelto®») for preventing venous thromboembolism during the early postoperative period and outpatient treatment stage in patients after hip joint (70 cases) and knee joint (30 cases) arthroplasty, as well as intramedullary osteosynthesis (150 cases) for fractures of long bones of extremities, was assessed. The drug was used at a dose of 10 mg once a day, starting from 6–10 hours after the operation and up to 35 days. A high efficacy and safety of Rivaroxaban («Xarelto®») was revealed. An allergic response was registered in one patient.
