Case 129 – update 3

Thanks for everyone’s thoughts in line with the consensus on the feed our patient was established on split dose LMWH and her Anti Xa levels are therapeutic. She is nearing the point of discharge home and the medical team contact you regarding the plan for longer term anticoagulation they tell you they feel this was a provoked event caused by BMI and Oral contraceptive pill usage.

What would you do regarding her single positive DRVVT result? 

What are her options for anticoagulation?

How long would you continue anticoagulation for?

Any other advice for the patient if she was planning on pregnancy after completing anticoagulation?
