This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Joint-replacement patients are among the groups of air passengers thought to be at highest risk of suffering deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) associated with long-haul air travel, warns the UK Department of Health. Advice issued to the airline industry and being made available to the public warns that patients of hip or knee replacements or of other major surgery carried out within three months prior to travel are at highest risk of the condition in flights of over five hours. People with cancer or who have received cancer treatment form another high-risk category.
