OBJECTIVES This study attempted to determine the optimal intensity of anticoagulant therapy in patients after myocardial infarction. BACKGROUND Treatment with oral anticoagulant therapy entails a delicate balance between over- (risk of bleeding) and under-anticoagulation (risk of thromboemboli). The optimal intensity required to prevent the occurrence of either event (bleeding or thromboembolic) is not known. METHODS A method was used to determine the optimal intensity of anticoagulant… CONTINUE READING
