Hip replacement patients at greater risk of stroke
Adults who underwent a total hip replacement had a higher risk of suffering an ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke two weeks after the procedure than those who didn't get the surgery, a Dutch study found. Researchers noted that antiplatelet therapy following discharge was associated with lower odds of ischemic stroke in the six weeks after the procedure. The findings were published in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.  MedPage Today (free registration) (11/11)
