Heparin, Low-Molecular-Weight MeSH Descriptor Data 2023


MeSH Heading
Heparin, Low-Molecular-Weight
Tree Number(s)
D09.698.373.400.300
Unique ID
D006495
RDF Unique Identifier

Annotation
/antag = probably HEPARIN ANTAGONISTS
Scope Note
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.
