Abstract

We have evaluated bleeding during and after hip replacement in 186 patients in relation to preoperative intake of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) combined with low molecular weight heparin. NSAID was associated with increased preoperative bleeding and blood transfusion requirements.
