The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy (as measured by the rate of recurrent symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism [VTE] (i.e., Pulmonary thromboembolism [PE] and Dee...
Trauma patients are at high risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). The incidence of DVT varies greatly from 5-63% among studies depending on patient's ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety of two different dose regimens of unfractionated heparin (UFH) during a PCI procedure in patients with UA (unstable angina)/NSTEMI (non S...
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 test the safety and efficacy of fondaparinux in patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT). The primary objective is to ensure that patients with...
In microvascular surgery, patients often receive unfractionated heparin infusions to minimize risk for microvascular thrombosis. Patients who receive intravenous (IV) heparin are believed to have a...
Aspirin and unfractionated heparin (UH) are accepted options for venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis after total joint arthroplasty (TJA). The use of aspirin in addition to UH in preventing VTE a...

Background: Enoxaparin, a low-molecular-weight heparin approved for prophylaxis in patients at risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE), offers several advantages compared with unfractionated heparin (UF...
Heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Critically ill patients are commonly thrombocytopenic and exposed to heparin. Although HIT should be cons...
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.
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)
A condition of lung damage that is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates (PULMONARY EDEMA) rich in NEUTROPHILS, and in the absence of clinical HEART FAILURE. This can represent a spectrum of pulmonary lesions, endothelial and epithelial, due to numerous factors (physical, chemical, or biological).
A prostaglandin that is a powerful vasodilator and inhibits platelet aggregation. It is biosynthesized enzymatically from PROSTAGLANDIN ENDOPEROXIDES in human vascular tissue. The sodium salt has been also used to treat primary pulmonary hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PULMONARY).
Coagulant substances inhibiting the anticoagulant action of heparin.
