Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Meningioma resection carries a risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in 3-4% patients, which is not significantly higher as compared to glial tumours. Preventive measures have been extensively studied but are still controversial. Non-chemical conservative measures including intermittent venous compression/stockings are a safe and effective tool to prevent VTE in this group of patients.
