Thrombo-embolic and bleeding complications in patients with mechanical valve replacements - a prospective observational study



Thrombo-embolic and bleeding complications in patients with mechanical valve replacements - a prospective observational study



SAMJ (South African Medical Journal) 96(8): 710-713



Background and objectives. Long-term anticoagulation therapy is essential to prevent thrombo-embolic events in patients with mechanical valve replacements. In order to offer indigent patients mechanical heart valve replacement surgery, dedicated anticoagulation clinics are necessary for follow-up. This study assessed the safety and efficacy of lifelong oral anticoagulation therapy in Johannesburg General Hospital mechanical heart valve replacement recipients.
