ABSTRACT
The author comments on the study that evaluates the efficacy of the combination of graduated compression stockings and fondaparinux in preventing thromboembolism in postsurgical patients. He pointed out that the study was limited in the scope of anticoagulant which is not widely used for prevention of deep venous thrombosis. He suggests that the study should change its clinical practice regarding the use of both mechanical and anticoagulant prophylaxis for deep venous thrombosis.
