    Alternative anticoagulation in patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is often problematic. The relatively high cross-reactivity rate reported for the low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWH) has discouraged their use in this setting. This study has investigated the safety of using the...
