Abstract Rapid clinical diagnosis and adequate treatment are the major determinants of successful therapy of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). In the initial treatment of DVT, heparin is the anticoagulant of choice. Appropriate heparin dosing is of major interest concerning the onset of therapeutic anticoagulation and, thus, the clinical outcome of the patients. This study was designed to compare a weight-based heparin nomogram with a standard heparin nomogram for the treatment of DVT in orthopaedic… CONTINUE READING
