Time in Therapeutic Range for Left Ventricular Assist Device Patients Anticoagulated With Warfarin: A Correlation to Clinical Outcomes.

Abstract

Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) require anticoagulation therapy with vitamin K antagonists to reduce the risk of thrombotic events. The quality of anticoagulation may be assessed by the time in therapeutic range (TTR). We analyzed a retrospective cohort of LVAD patients at a single institution from January 2012 to September 2014.
