Several studies have demonstrated that heparin assays, such as anti-activated factor X (anti-Xa) assays, can be successfully substituted for activated partial thromboplastin time for heparin dosage monitoring. A number of different assays are available and the relationship between results with different techniques is largely unknown. The aim of the present study was to assess the relationship between heparin assays by protamine titration and anti-Xa assays. Samples were collected from 43… CONTINUE READING
