Long-term anti-coag: Long-term anticoagulation is likely recommended as long as no risk factors for bleeding with good anticoagulation monitoring. There is a high risk for recurrence and the potential benefits from long-term warfarin may outweigh the risks. The condition is ideally co-managed by your doctor and a hematologist. A IVF filter may be considered depending on the specifics.
