Table 2 The incidence of VTE after ACL reconstruction and meniscectomy

From: Does anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction increase venous thromboembolism risk compared with knee meniscectomy under arthroscopy?

Outcome ACLR group
(n = 130)
Meniscectomy group (n = 190) P value
Total VTE, n (%) 14(10.8) 10(5.3) 0.066
Major VTE, n (%) 4(3.1) 2(1.1) 0.373a
Proximal DVT, n (%) 0 1(0.5) 0.307*
Distal DVT, n (%) 4(3.1) 1(0.5) 0.178a
PE, n (%) 0 0
Other VTE, n (%) 10(7.7) 8(4.2) 0.184
