Abstract

  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To evaluate the effects of physiotherapeutic techniques and mechanical methods for prophylaxis of venous thrombosis in patients who are at risk of haemorrhage.

Hypotheses to be tested:
a) There is no difference among physiotherapeutic techniques and mechanical methods to prevent DVT in patients who are at risk of haemorrhage.
b) There is no difference between physiotherapy and pharmacological intervention to prevent DVT in patients who are at risk of haemorrhage.
c) There is no difference between pharmacological intervention and associated physiotherapy when compared with pharmacological intervention to prevent DVT in patients who are at risk of haemorrhage.
