Abstract

Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) is an unusual complication after arthroscopic meniscus surgery. There is no consensus for anticoagulant therapy following routine arthroscopic meniscus surgery. Here we present a case of near-fatal pulmonary thromboembolism after an elective arthroscopic meniscus repair.
