ABSTRACT
An attempt has been made to assess the degree of control achieved during short term anticoagulant therapy as prescribed by one house physician. Less than 50 per cent of the patients treated proved to be well controlled, and the difficulties encountered are described. It is possible that differences in adequacy of anticoagulant control may account for varying therapeutic results.
