Abstract
Orthopedic surgical procedures are associated with a variety of complications due to em- bolic phenomena. Fat embolism syndrome is associated with multiple trauma injuries and surgery involving longbone fractures. The pathogenesis of syndrome is not clear and treatment remains supportive. We experienced a case of pulmonary embolism associated with total hip replacement. We suspected embolism on pulmonary perfusion scan and diagnosed fat embolism with criteria for diagnosis of fat embolism syndrome by Gurd.
Key Words: Total hip replacement; Fat embolism
