Worthwhile getting the full workup (hematology). ...Read more

Pat. With mitral prosthetic heart valve and develope sah. When we restart anticoagulant and we start by lmwh or warfarin?
No good answer: I'm presuming sah is "subarachnoid hemorrhage". The answer depends on if the mitral valve is bioprosthetic or mechanical (i presume mechanical in a 36 yo) and if the rhythm is sinus or atrial fib (common in this setting). There are no controlled trials to guide this. There is no right answer. Be guided by the cardiologist's experience that you know and trust. Good luck with this difficult situation. ...Read more
