Chemical Heparin, Low-Molecular-Weight

Name Heparin, Low-Molecular-Weight
Equivalent Terms Heparin, Low Molecular Weight | LMWH | Low Molecular Weight Heparin | Low-Molecular-Weight Heparin
Definition Heparin fractions with a molecular weight usually between 4000 and 6000 kD. These low-molecular-weight fractions are effective antithrombotic agents. Their administration reduces the risk of hemorrhage, they have a longer half-life, and their platelet interactions are reduced in comparison to unfractionated heparin. They also provide an effective prophylaxis against postoperative major pulmonary embolism.
