The Editor,

Sir,

Excessive haemorrhage in orthopaedic surgery can be due to multiple causes. One of the rarer causes is the chronic effect of certain drugs. Ascertaining preoperative history and stoppage of use of platelet inhibitors, thrombolytics or anticoagulants is imperative. Occurrence of excessive bleeding, despite the application of a tourniquet, can be mystifying.
