Venous thromboembolism (VTE) continues to be one of the most important, and highly controversial, topics in orthopaedics. While many surgeons have discussed the incidence and treatment of this potentially life-threatening complication, little has been published about the clinical outcomes of patients who receive treatment and recover from these conditions. We evaluated the clinical outcomes of patients who suffered non-fatal VTE and compared them to a matched cohort with no complications after total knee arthroplasty using our institution's joint arthroplasty registry. At two years, the patient-reported clinical outcomes were equivalent between the groups. While VTE remains an important consideration in total knee arthroplasty, it is helpful for surgeons to know that patient outcomes are not negatively affected after appropriate treatment of these complications.
