57 patients who underwent TKA without thromboprophylaxis were randomized to receive one of two intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) therapies for prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT): alternate sequential compression or simultaneous sequential compression. The purpose of the study was to compare hemodynamic parameters and the incidence of DVT between treatments to determine if one system w...
