Aspirin is conventionally regarded as an agent that prevents arterial thrombosis, an effect mediated through inhibition of platelet cyclooxygenase-1, resulting in decreased synthesis of thromboxane A(2) (platelet-activating eicosanoid). In high-risk patients, aspirin reduces by one quarter the frequency of arterial thrombosis.(1) In 1977, aspirin (at a dose of 600 mg twice daily) was shown to reduce the risk of venous thrombosis when it was given to patients after they had undergone hip arthoplasty.(2) Thirty-five years later, guidelines include aspirin as one option for preventing venous thromboembolism after orthopedic surgery.(3) However, many experts regard aspirin as inferior therapy for this . . .
