Oral and parenteral anticoagulants are available and effective in the treatment of thromboembolic diseases. Discontinuing therapy is inviting recurrence in certain cases. Reports on anticoagulant therapy should include answers to pertinent questions: 1. How were the patients selected? 2. Were "control" and "treated" series selected by unbiased random sampling? 3. Who actively controlled the anticoagulant therapy?
