Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the efficacy of DU-176b in the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) from 6 to 8 hours after hip replacement surgery to 7 to 10 days after the surgery. [ Time Frame: 6 to8 hours after after hip replacement surgery to 7 to 10 days after the surgery. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    A subject was judged to have a VTE if one or more of the following criteria were met:

    • Observed lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT) (either proximal, distal, or both ) as assessed by bilateral or unilateral ascending contrast venography prior to or at the end-of-treatment (EOT) visit
    • Symptomatic and objectively proven pulmonary embolism prior to or at the EOT visit
    • Symptomatic and objectively proven DVT prior to or at EOT visit

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The incidence of major venous thromboembolism (including proximal deep vein thrombosis and symptomatic pulmonary embolism) plus all cause mortality from 6 to 8 hours after hip replacement surgery to 7-10 days after the surgery [ Time Frame: 6-8 hours after hip replacement surgery to 7 to 10 days after the surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
