In two randomized double-blind studies perioperative bleeding complications and thromboembolic events were assessed in 189 patients (pts) undergoing elective visceral surgery after subcutaneous administration of a low molecular weight (LMW) heparin fragment (KABI fragment 2165) or unfractionated (UF) heparin. The first study comparing 1 X 7'500 anti-factor Xa IU LMW heparin daily with 2 X 5'000 IU UF heparin was interrupted because of excessive bleeding complications (LMW heparin: 11/23 pts, UF… CONTINUE READING
