ABSTRACT
1. The use of anticoagulant therapy for patients with thromboembolic disease on an outpatient basis is recorded for 144 cases followed from 3 months to 5 years using, as the anticoagulant of choice, warfarin sodium. 2. Safe, therapeutic prothrombin levels can be reached and maintained satisfactorily in a majority of cases. 3. Clinical improvement over previously accepted standards of care has been striking. 4. No serious side effects or hemorrhages were encountered, particularly after vitamin C was administered in conjunction with warfarin sodium.
