Perioperative Management of the Gynecologic Patient on Long-term Anticoagulation.
The perioperative management of patients taking antithrombotic or antiplatelet medications is based on an assessment of the individual patient's risk for thrombosis or bleeding, the specific medication involved, and the nature of the planned procedure. This article describes specific strategies for whether and how these medications should be interrupted before gynecologic procedures, when they can be restarted following the procedure, and whether bridging therapy should be considered.
