No venous thromboembolism (VTE) prevention guidelines currently exist for otolaryngology. Cramer and colleagues conducted a cohort study to compare the rate of VTE after various otolaryngology procedures with that of an average-risk field (general surgery) and low-risk field (plastic surgery). They found that the overall 30-day rate of VTE was 0.5% for otolaryngology compared with 0.7% for plastic surgery and 1.2% for general surgery.
