Objective: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) still remains a significant public health problem due to gaps between recommendations and clinical practice in VTE prophylaxis. This is the first clinical study designed to evaluate the applicability of a standard 'VTE prophylaxis and risk factor assessment form (VTE-PRAF)' and prescription of VTE prophylaxis among hospitalized patients in the daily practice of general surgeons in Turkey.
