Abstract

With the increasing use of oral anticoagulation therapy the appropriate management of perioperative anticoagulation is of surgical importance. There is a delicate balance between the risk of a perioperative thromboembolic event and the risk of operative bleeding from anticoagulation. Whilst there are a range of options available to the clinician, there appears to be no precise agreement about how to best manage this problem.
