Resuming anticoagulation after hemorrhage: A practical approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Most patients who suffer a hemorrhage while on longterm anticoagulant therapy continue to be at risk of thrombosis. Physicians often need to reconsider the need for anticoagulation in view of the risk of recurrent bleeding, and when anticoagulation needs to be resumed, they must also consider the timing and strategy. Since there are no evidence-based guidelines for these situations, the authors of this paper offer a practical framework for individualizing the resumption of anticoagulation after hemorrhage.
