Reload of high dose statin may have potential for preventing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients on statin undergoing total knee replacement arthroplasty.

A body of evidence have been reported that reloading of atorvastatin have efficacy in reducing periprocedural myocardial infarction and contrast induced nephropathy. These effects are considered to be mainly due to their antioxidant anti-thrombotic and anti-inflammatory property.

We, therefore, hypothesize that high dose atorvastatin re-loading may prevent DVT.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Development of deep vein thrombosis diagnosed and confirmed by CT angiography at lower extremities [ Time Frame: 7days after index surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • D-dimer, lipid panel (Total cholesterol, TG, HDL, LDL), hsCRP, CK, transaminase, ALP [ Time Frame: 7days, 1month, 2month after index surgery ]

Estimated Enrollment: 180
Study Start Date: November 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Atorvastatin + enoxaparine arm
High dose atorvastatin arm before index surgery+ conventional enoxaparin
Drug: High dose Atorvastatin+enoxaparin
High dose atorvastatin 80mg/day for 7days after index surgery (total knee replacement arthroplasty, TKRA). At the same time Enoxaparin 40mg SQ/day 12hr before TKRA and from 1day to 7day after TKRA should be administered.
Active Comparator: Conventional Enoxaprin
Conventional Enoxaparin before 12hr and on 1-7th day after index surgery
Drug: Enoxaparin
Enoxaparin 40mg SQ/day 12hr before TKRA and on day 1 to day7 after TKRA should be administered.
