The Incidence of Thromboembolic Events in Patients with Antibodies to Heparin-PF4 after Cardiac Bypass

Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
phs000606 Longitudinal

Study Description

The purpose of this study is to determine how often heart surgery patients who receive heparin develop an immune response (heparin-induced thrombocytopenia) that leads to clots forming in different parts of the body. These clots usually occur in the legs (deep venous thrombosis or DVT) or lungs (pulmonary embolism or PE) or cause heart attacks (myocardial infarction or MI) and strokes.
