To evaluate the incidence of primary venous thromboembolism (VTE), epidural haematoma, surgical site infection (SSI), and 90-day mortality after elective spinal surgery, and the effect of two protocols for prophylaxis.

Patients and Methods

A total of 2181 adults underwent 2366 elective spinal procedures between January 2007 and January 2012. All patients wore anti-embolic stockings, mobilised early and were kept adequately hydrated. In addition, 29% (689) of these were given low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) while in hospital. SSI surveillance was undertaken using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria.

We present a case of subperiosteal giant-cell reparative granuloma followed over six years showing the complete evolution from the early phase of subperiosteal haematoma to the end stage of an ossified haematoma. Such lesions, although they are histologically similar to true giant-cell tumours, can be distinguished by the patients' age, their location on the diaphysis, and by their radiological and histological features.
