IN anticoagulants, heparins, low molecular weight heparins, unfractionated heparin The Use of
low molecular weight heparins
As Treatment, Acute
Is equal Than
unfractionated heparin
To risk of thrombocytopenia: 1.2% with LMWH VS 1.5% with UH. Severe heparin-induced thrombocytopenia with thrombosis was too low to make an adequate comparison.
