Postoperative anemia is common, and most often due to surgical blood loss. Perioperative anticoagulant and antiplatelet medication administration is one of the most common reasons for postoperative bleeding. However, anemia and bleeding may result from a variety of other postoperative care-related and patient-specific factors. Prompt evaluation is necessary to determine potential causes and appropriate treatment.
