Anticoagulant bridging: Prosthetic heart valves, labeling changes, and limiting issues of liability

News
Article

With enoxaparin?s recent labeling change regarding its use in patients with prosthetic valves, clinicians may have several questions about appropriate anticoagulant selection. Specifically, what evidence prompted the labeling change, which patients are affected, what are the options and limitations for bridging patients, what?s the evidence supporting the role of low molecular weight heparins (LMWHs) in bridge therapy, and how can liability be limited should clinicians choose to use LMWH therapy? The authors of this commentary offer their insight on these issues.
