The RCOG Green-top guideline  recommends the use of mechanical thromboprophylaxis for patients with a contraindication to LMWH
. This is a grade D recommendation based on relatively less robust data.
Of the many methods presented, evidences shows that the efficient ones are the use of intermittent pneumatic compression (mechanical method), the use of UF (chemoprophylaxis), and the use of LMWH
Several studies have validated extended out-of-hospital prophylaxis with warfarin or LMWH
in prevention of VTE among orthopedic patients.
Key words included LMWH
, enoxaparin, bruising, pain, and subcutaneous injection.
Usually, for acute CVST, anticoagulant therapy with heparin or LMWH
is recommended. Moreover, the prevention of rethrombosis is also crucial.
* In patients at high risk of bleeding or undergoing neuraxial anaesthesia, it is recommended to start LMWH
a minimum of 12 hours postoperatively.
consists of smaller fragments of UFH (nearly 18 saccharide units long, molecular weight approximately 5 kDa) produced by controlled enzymatic or chemical depolymerisation [33, 34].
In Europe, low molecular weight heparin (LMWH
) is traditionally started before surgery, whereas in North America a higher dose of LMWH
is usually started postoperatively due to concern for hemorrhage .
There is increasing use of low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH
) for treatment of pediatric thromboembolic disease as it has been shown to be safe and effective.
The patient was commenced low molecular weight heparin therapy (LMWH
) (enoxaparin, 8.000 units twice daily).
ASA was stopped and he received treatment with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH
) (tinzaparin 14000 IU).
The SimGlycan master database is updated with curated (a) N-glycans derived from Monoclonal antibody (mAb), Bovine Fetuin, Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO), (b) glycosaminoglycans derived from Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH
), and (c) polysaccharides derived from plants.
He subsequently started receiving low molecular weight heparin (LMWH
) together with warfarin.
As a result, our hemodialysis unit recently switched from UFH to the low molecular weight heparin (LMWH
These 11 Asian studies (Table 1) reported 8 anticoagulation strategies including: Antithrombin III (ATIII), low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH
) plus Warfarin plus Aspirin, LMWH
plus Warfarin, Urokinase + Aspirin, Warfarin, Alprostadil, Aspirin, LMWH
