Intensive care unit patients have multiple risk factors for venous thromboembolism. Venous thromboembolism leads to significant morbidity and can be fatal. Unfractionated heparin and low...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether low-molecular-weight heparin could be equally or more effective than oral anticoagulation in the long-term treatment of deep venous thrombo...
Low molecular weight heparins (LMWH) are the reference molecule for the long term treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in cancer patients but remains, however, associated with a high ...
The aim of this study is to verify, through clinical examination and doppler, the non-inferiority of the drug test (heparin sodium 5.000UI/0.25 mL - HIPOLABOR) in relation to the drug comp...
The purpose of this study is to ascertain whether subcutaneous ports are an effective and reliable way to administer the low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) enoxaparin to patients for the ...
Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) is the treatment of choice in cancer patients with venous thromboembolism. However, data on continuing LMWH treatment beyond six months remain scanty.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes both deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (PE), is a very common disorder with high risk for recurrence and is associated with significant morbidity...
: Venous thromboembolism is a common and potentially life-threatening complication that occurs in 4 to 15% of patients admitted to ICUs despite the routine use of pharmacological prophylaxis. We there...
Since several trials have demonstrated that low-molecular-weight-heparin (LMWH) is superior to vitamin K antagonist (VKA) in preventing recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with cancer-a...
: Due to their ease of use, the direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are an attractive treatment option for cancer-associated venous thromboembolism (VTE) and have been readily adopted by many clinician...
Heparin fractions with a molecular weight usually between 4000 and 6000 kD. These low-molecular-weight fractions are effective antithrombotic agents. Their administration reduces the risk of hemorrhage, they have a longer half-life, and their platelet interactions are reduced in comparison to unfractionated heparin. They also provide an effective prophylaxis against postoperative major pulmonary embolism.
A low-molecular-weight fragment of heparin, prepared by nitrous acid depolymerization of porcine mucosal heparin. The mean molecular weight is 4000-6000 daltons. It is used therapeutically as an antithrombotic agent. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
A heparin fraction with a mean molecular weight of 4500 daltons. It is isolated from porcine mucosal heparin and used as an antithrombotic agent. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
Low-molecular-weight fragment of heparin, having a 4-enopyranosuronate sodium structure at the non-reducing end of the chain. It is prepared by depolymerization of the benzylic ester of porcine mucosal heparin. Therapeutically, it is used as an antithrombotic agent. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
Coagulant substances inhibiting the anticoagulant action of heparin.
