  1. This is useful as I often ding that surgical specialist leave this up to the family physician or want a referral to internal.

  2. Very interesting since I had just been told by a Colleague to do the bridging for my patients referred for epidural cortisone injections! Thank you

  3. Helps to clarify in my mind and reinforce what I’m currently doing.

  4. Thank you for this article. It is a good summary of the most recent literature that applies to everyday practice. Much appreciated.

  5. very useful information indeed.

    However rather odd choice of wording

    ” Bridging anticoagulation was non-inferior to placebo in preventing arterial thromboembolism ” , Surely since we are asking if bridging helps prevent thromoboemoloc events, it should state converse.:

    “Placebo was non-inferior to birdging anticoagulation in preventing arterial thromboembolism ”

    Anyway very useful and helpful in chnaging our practice. This will also save a LOT of money dispensing with LMWH

    The question then is when to resume regular anticoagulation
