Multicenter Registry for Effectiveness Analysis of ActiveCare+S.F.T® Mobile Compression Device for Thrombosis Prevention in Hip and Knee Arthroplasty (ACOR)

This study has been completed.

Last verified: November 2013
Venous thromboembolic events (VTE), either deep vein thromboses or pulmonary emboli, are important complications in patients undergoing knee or hip arthroplasty. This multicenter Clinical Registry is aimed at collecting large volume clinical effectiveness data of ActiveCare+S.F.T® mobile compression device +/- aspirin in lowering the potential risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in patients undergoing primary lower extremity total joint arthroplasty. The results can then be compared to pharmacology protocols.

Enrollment: 411
Study Start Date: April 2011
Study Completion Date: October 2011
Primary Completion Date: October 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Lower Extremity Joint Arthroplasty
Postoperative venous thromboembolism incidence in lower extremity joint arthroplasty using only the mobile compression device with or without aspirin for venous thromboembolism prevention. Sub-analysis of Total Hip Arthroplasty and Total Knee Arthroplasty will be included.

  Show Detailed Description


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
The registry will include all Adult patients scheduled for elective unilateral total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA), or unicondylar knee arthroplasty (UKA), where the orthopaedic surgeon is using the ActiveCare+S.F.T® mobile compression device as a monotherapy for venous thromboembolism prevention.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult patients (Age >18 yrs).
  • Patient intended to undergo elective primary unilateral total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA), or unicondylar knee arthroplasty (UKA).
  • Patient is using only ActiveCare+S.F.T® +/- aspirin for venous thromboembolism (VTE) prevention(Aspirin (ASA) can be prescribed at the discretion of the surgeon).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient with known coagulation disorder
  • Patient currently treated with anticoagulant medications.
  • Patients with current signs and symptoms of or history of deep vein thrombosis(DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE).
  • Patients currently suffering from a solid tumor malignancy.
  • Patients who underwent major surgery procedure within 3 months prior to participation in the registry
