PREVENT CLOT Study

The purpose of this research study is to see what medicine is better to use for preventing death and clinically important blood clots in the lungs in patients who sustain trauma. There are two types of medicine we will compare in this study: Low Molecular Weight Heparin (Lovenox/Enoxaparin) and Aspirin. Our goal is to find the simplest, most effective medication for orthopaedic trauma patients.
