Various groups within ESSKA conduct surveys to analyse the needs and priorities of our members as well as their surgical habits.

Prophylaxis for Venous Thromboembolism and Heterotopic Ossification after Hip Arthroscopy Surveys

The ESSKA Hip Arthroscopy Committee has conducted two surveys amongst ESSKA members on Prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism after Hip Arthroscopy and for Heterotopic Ossification (HO) after Hip Arthroscopy. The surveys outcomes confirm that a consensus statement on this topic is important and that a common direction in the prophylaxis of our HA patients will be beneficial. The committee aims to achieve this goal during the next 18th ESSKA Congress in Glasgow.

Summaries of the surveys are available below:

Survey on Prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism (VTE) in Hip Arthroscopy
