Abstract

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) presents a significant risk for women requiring Caesarean section.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) remains the leading direct cause of maternal death in the
UK and is the second most common cause of maternal death worldwide, accounting for 11%
of maternal deaths (RCOG 2009). This article uses a reflective cycle to explore the role of the
preoperative practitioner in the prevention of DVT for women undergoing elective Caesarean
section.
