Low molecular weight heparin is longer acting and only partially reversible with protamine. The use of low molecular weight heparin during percutaneous intervention is undergoing evaluation. Direct thrombin inhibitors These include hirudin, bivalirudin, lepirudin, and argatroban. They directly bind thrombin and act independently of antithrombin III.

As cardiac output and blood pressure fall, there is an increase in sympathetic tone, with subsequent cardiac and systemic effects—such as altered mental state, cold extremities, peripheral cyanosis, and urine output < 30 ml/hour.

He underwent emergency angiography (top), which showed a totally occluded proximal left anterior descending artery (arrow).

Diagnosis is usually confirmed by echocardiography, allowing visualisation of the anatomy of the defect and Doppler estimation of the shunt size. The physiological importance of the defect depends on the duration and size of the shunt, as well as the response of the pulmonary vascular bed. 5) should be considered for closure when the diagnosis is made in later life because the defect reduces survival in adults who develop progressive pulmonary hypertension. They may also develop atrial tachyarrhythmias, which commonly precipitate heart failure.
