ABSTRACT
A review has been presented of some of the more classical and recent findings in regard to results of anticoagulant therapy in acute myocardial infarction, the long-term prophylactic treatment of coronary artery disease, the use of anticoagulant therapy in cerebral vascular disease, as well as in postoperative thromboembolism. The most desirable procedures to be used for the control of oral anticoagulant therapy have been discussed as well as an evaluation as to which type of anticoagulant to use, i.e., heparin versus the oral anticoagulants. From this appraisal it appears that attention should be focused upon the evidence that anticoagulants effect morbidity more than they do mortality in most of the above mentioned conditions, as well as the fact that the role of heparin in anticoagulant therapy should be further evaluated on a clinical basis.
