Reversal of anticoagulation with four-factor prothrombin complex concentrate without concurrent vitamin K (phytonadione) for urgent surgery in a patient at moderate-to-high risk for thromboembolism.

Abstract

Successful vitamin K antagonist (eg, warfarin) reversal with 4-factor prothrombin complex concentrate (4F-PCC) without vitamin K (phytonadione) for emergent surgery in a patient at moderate-to-high risk for thromboembolism is reported.
