Low molecular weight heparins potentially have significant advantages over unfractionated heparin and oral anticoagulants for both the prevention and treatment of thromboembolic events in children. Compared to standard heparin, low molecular weight heparins have superior bioavailability, a longer half-life, and a dose-independent clearance, which results in a more predictable anticoagulant response. Low molecular weight heparins are administered subcutaneously and require minimal laboratory… CONTINUE READING
