Anticoagulant treatment

Anticoagulants are the treatment of choice for venous thromboembolic disease. They are also used in patients with a heart arrhythmia or heart condition that predisposes them to having a systemic embolism (formation of a clot or thrombus that travels from the heart to any blood vessel in the body) or from the heart to the veins in the brain causing a stroke.

Anticoagulants are medication that modify blood clotting so that a thrombus or clot does not form inside the blood vessels. The main effect is to slow the blood’s clotting time.
