  15. Perioperative management of patients on warfarin therapy:
    • Stop warfarin ~5 days before major surgery
    • bridge with LMWH or heparin in high risk patients

    • If INR still elevated 1-2 days before surgery give low dose vit K (1-2mg)
    • If reversal in urgent surgical procedure give low dose (2.5-5mg) IV or PO vit K
    • Resume warfarin 12-24 hours post surgery when adequate hemostasis
    • LMWH- high bleed risk- resume 48-72 h w hemostasis; low bleed risk- resume 24 hours
    • continue warfarin or ASA in minor dental, dermtologic, or cataract surgery
    • Antiplatellet therapies (clopidogrel or prasugrel) may need to stop 5-10 before surgery, evaluate case by case
  16. Per CHEST guidelines, how do you anticoagulate A.fib patients?
    • A.fib > 48 hours, anticoagulate with warfarin for 3 weeks prior and 4 weeks after cardioversion while under normal sinus rhythm
    • A.fib ≤ 48 hours, undergoing elective  cardioversion, start full warfarin therapy and continue for 4 weeks while under normal sinus rhythm
    • Chronic A.fib- CHADS2 Score recommendation
  17. CHADS2 Scoring System assess the risks of VTE in patients with A.fib. How do you asses? What do the results mean?
    • Each of the following components is a risk factor: CHF(1), HTN(1), Age >75(1), Diabetes(1), prior Stroke/TIA(2)
    • Score of 0: no therapy, ASA if patient wants it
    • Score of 1: oral anticoagulation recommended, if can't then ASA and clopidogrel
    • Score of ≥2: oral anticoagulation, if can't then ASA and clopidogrel
  18. What are 2 non-pharmacological ways to prevent venous thromoembolism?
    • Graduated Compression Stockings (GCS)
