Fondaparinux and enoxaparin in comparison to unfractionated heparin in preventing thrombus formation on mechanical heart valves in an ex vivo rabbit model.

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to investigate the efficacy of three different parenterally administered anticoagulants for the prevention of thrombus formation on artificial heart valves in an experimental rabbit model. Unfractionated heparin was administered intravenously in group I (n = 10), Enoxaparin subcutaneously in group II (n = 10), fondaparinux… (More)
