The prophylactic deep venous antithrombotic efficacy of a low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) was compared with traditional unfractionated calcium heparin in 39 patients submitted to cardiac surgery. The patients were allocated at random to receive either LMWH-Fluxum 3200 IUaXa daily (Group A: 20 patients) or calcium heparin 5000 IU three times daily (Group B: 19 patients). Both treatments were started on the first day after surgery and continued over the fourth postoperative days. One or more… Expand
