Proposed merge[edit]

Anticoagulation in pregnancy is currently too short to be an article by itself, so it would be better to merge it into this article.—greenrd 13:03, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Oppose. The article was created a couple hours ago. Give me some time! Anticoagulation in pregnancy has a number of special issues associated with it, such as the various regimens available, when to change regimen, risks associated with each regimen, etc. Also indications for anticoagulation in pregnancy are not always the same as general anticoagulation (ie: If I recall correctly, some women only develop deep venous thrombosis during pregnancy). The topic should be able to stand on it's own and be interesting for a number of people facing this issue.Ksheka 13:08, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
Another reason to oppose the merge is that this topic may garner interest from two entirely different groups of people. People who are interested in anticoagulation and people interested in pregnancy, and if it is merged into either anticoagulant or pregnancy, you will lose the other group.Ksheka 14:46, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

oppose!!!!! two different subjects should not be placed to gether although both are almost the same it is still different. i agree wit ksheka not to merge both articlesUser:tom

Oppose. These are both big topics whose pages are currently thin and need time to grow. If they are merged now, I think they will eventually have to be unmerged.Badgettrg 12:12, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

The opposition has spoken. Anticoagulation in pregnancy is almost the same length as Anticoagulant and has many more references. No good reasons have been put forth to merge the articles, while a few good reasons have been mentioned to keep them apart. I am considering the issue closed. Ksheka 12:24, 23 July 2007 (UTC)


Would be worth mentioning hirudo medicinalis's anticoagulant uses

We could devote a section to anticoagulants in nature. Hirudo is definitely worth mentioning, especially its use (hirudin, lepirudin). JFW | T@lk 19:59, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Double blind[edit]

doi:10.1111/j.1538-7836.2007.02848.x - the title suggests that double-blind trials are not always ideal, and uses anticoagulants as an example. I wonder what they're getting at... JFW | T@lk 17:44, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Drotrecogin alfa[edit]

Is it possible Xigris has anti-coagulant effects because of the role played by Protein C? I am ignorant of how it is metabolized. Nagelfar (talk) 16:57, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

What is "bridging"? Greensburger (talk) 03:43, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
Greensburger It is the use of short-acting anticoagulant drugs in periods just before and after surgery to prevent thrombosis while longer-acting drugs such as warfarin cannot be given. JFW | T@lk 20:36, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
