The RCOG Green-top guideline [3] 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 (chemoprophylaxis).
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.[5] 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.
LMWH 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 [15].

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.
As a result, our hemodialysis unit recently switched from UFH to the low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), dalteparin.
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 plus Aspirin.
