Summary of "Is Early Chemical Thromboprophylaxis in Patients with Solid Organ Injury a Solid Decision?"

The optimal time to initiate chemical thromboprophylaxis (CTP) in patients who have undergone non-operative management (NOM) of blunt solid organ injuries remains controversial. The aim of our study was to assess the impact of early initiation of CTP in patients with blunt abdominal solid organ injuries (SOI).
