NBCA DVT/PE Awareness Survey Methodology
NBCA’s DVT/PE Awareness Survey was conducted by the national survey firm USA/Direct, Inc. The THA/TKA surgeon sample consisted of 200 THA/TKA surgeons screened from an online or Internet research panel. The THA/TKA patient sample, also screened from an online research panel, consisted of 500 adults, 20+ years (mean age 54; 55% female), who had undergone THA/TKA surgery within 12 months of sampling.
NBCA is sharing additional results of its DVT/PE Awareness Survey findings at additional medical meetings in upcoming weeks and months, and through educational DVDs being made available to healthcare professionals in orthopedics nationwide.

NBCA is a patient-led advocacy organization dedicated to promoting patient and public awareness about the signs and symptoms of DVT and PE.
