Systematic prevention of deep vein thrombosis by using sub cutaneous heparin treatment after cesarean section advantages and inconveniences

Women (234) who had undergone cesarean sections were studied. Hematoma in the area of the incision represents a major obstacle to the prevention of deep vein thrombosis through systematic s.c. heparin therapy. Even though anticoagulant therapy is not 100% effective, complications in this particular treatment appear to be minor. Evidently, this therapy should be reserved for certain favorable cases and should not be generally used for all women undergoing cesarean sections.
