Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess different doses of a new drug (BAY 59-7939), taken as a tablet, are safe and can help prevent blood clots forming after a hip replacement operation. Patients undergoing hip replacement surgery are at risk of developing blood clots. To reduce this risk treatment to prevent clots forming is routinely given. The current treatments can include injections under the skin or other treatments that need frequent blood tests to monitor levels of drug in the body. Therefore there is a need for new drugs, which are easier to give and need less monitoring.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Composite Endpoint of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), non-fatal Pulmonary Embolism (PE) and Death from all causes [ Time Frame: 6-10 days after surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of DVTs (total, proximal, distal) [ Time Frame: 6-10 days after surgery ]
  2. Incidence of symptomatic Venous Thrombo Embolisms (VTEs) [ Time Frame: 6-10 days after surgery ]
  3. Incidence of major VTE (ie, Proximal DVT, PE or VTE-related death) [ Time Frame: 6-10 days after surgery ]
  4. The composite endpoint that results from the primary endpoint by substituting VTE related death for all death [ Time Frame: 40 days ]
  5. Incidence of symptomatic VTEs (total, PE, DVT) within 30 days after stop of treatment with the study drug [ Time Frame: 40 days ]
