Abstract

The previous articles in this supplement have recounted, in detail, a number of the findings of the Global Orthopaedic Registry (GLORY) and placed them within the context of current knowl-edge regarding anticoagulation in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Furthermore, because of the multinational nature of GLORY, we have been able to provide a preliminary view of some of the geographical differences in orthopedic practices that occur.
