Correlation analysis of Blood TM, TG and D-dimer with deep venous Thrombosis formation in patients after Total Hip Arthroplasty
Objective: To explore the correlation of blood thrombomodulin (TM), triglyceride (TG) and D-Dimer (D-D) with the formation of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients after total hip arthroplasty (THA).
Methods: A retrospective analysis was carried out focusing on the clinical data of 150 patients with THA who were admitted to Sichuan Provincial Orthopedic Hospital from May 2019 to May 2022 (the study group). These patients were then subdivided into Group-A (46 cases with DVT) and Group-B (104 cases without DVT) according to whether DVT occurred after an operation. Meanwhile, another 70 patients who received physical examination in this hospital in the same period were selected as the control group. Furthermore, the levels of TM, TG, D-D, fibrinogen (Fb) and C-reactive protein (CRP) were compared between the groups. Pearson correlation was used to analyze the relationship between the levels of TM, TG, D-D, Fb, CRP and the formation of DVT.
Results: The levels of TM, TG, D-D, Fb and CRP in the study group were significantly higher than those in the control group (p<0.05). The above indicators in Group-A were higher than those in Group-B one day after the operation (p<0.05). Pearson correlation analysis showed that the levels of TM, TG, D-D, Fb and CRP were significantly positively correlated with the formation of DVT.
Conclusion: Patients with DVT after THA show an increase in the levels of TM, TG, D-D, Fb and CRP, indicating their diagnostic value for the formation of DVT. Findings in our study suggest that clinical tests of these indicators can be carried out according to the actual situation of patients.
