Effects of the oral anticoagulant phenprocoumon on blood coagulation and thrombogenesis induced by rabbit aorta subendothelium exposed to flowing human blood: role of dose and shear rate.

We investigated the effect of oral anticoagulation on thrombogenesis induced by the subendothelium of rabbit aorta. Eighteen healthy volunteers underwent a 2-week treatment with the oral coumarin preparation phenprocoumon to a target international normalized ratio (INR) of 5. By using an ex-vivo perfusion chamber system, the interaction between flowing… CONTINUE READING
