For example, it is known that unfractionated heparin use, especially beyond 4 days of treatment, is known to have a greater risk for causing HIT when compared to LMWH dalteparin, enoxaparin, and tinzaparin. The effects of low molecular weight and standard heparin on calcium loss from fetal rat calvaria. Linkins LA et al.

About Us Disclaimer Contact Us. While low-molecular weight heparins LMWH can also cause HIT, the incidence is much insery and appears to be related, in part, to the molecular weight. Treatment and Prevention of Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia: The incidence of HIT is greatest in unfractionated heparin use beyond 4 days at therapeutic doses. As noted above, the length of the chain which influences the molecular weight contributes, in part, to heparin’s ability to bind to PF4 that triggers the immune mediated response seen in HIT.


Xrixtra Triangle Park, NC. Antibodies to macromolecular platelet factor srixtra complexes in heparin-induced thrombocytopenia: Treatment and prevention of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia: An evaluation of the molecular weights among the heparin related medications reveals that UFH’s molecular weight ranges from 3, to 30, daltons whereas, the LMWH range from 2, to 10, daltons.

While the use of heparin based anticoagulants have improved patient oriented outcomes in patients with lackage related medical conditions, they paradoxically are also known to put some patients at risk for developing the life threatening thrombosis called heparin induced thrombocytopenia HIT.

Fondaparinux Arixtra is an anticoagulant that shares the same pentasaccharide sequence as UFH and LMWH for the binding to antithrombin, however it has no extra chain and thus, is not considered a heparin product.

Explanation The use of anticoagulants, such qrixtra unfractionated heparin UFH and low-molecular weight heparin LMWH have significantly improved patient oriented outcomes for medical conditions related to thrombotic events.

There are number of risk factors associated with increasing the chance for a patient to develop HIT, one of which is the type of anticoagulant used.


However, they are also known to cause clinically relevant side effects, or adverse drug events, such as bleeding including hemorrhagic stroke, gastrointestinal bleeding, osteoporosis long-term usepriapism, and hyperkalemia from inhibition of aldosterone synthesis.

Fondaparinux (Arixtra)

However, the longer the use especially if used at therapeutic doses the greater the incidence of HIT. The use of anticoagulants, such as unfractionated heparin UFH and low-molecular weight heparin LMWH have significantly improved patient oriented outcomes for medical conditions related to thrombotic events.

It is also worth noting that some patients with HIT have been shown to have platelet recovery with fondaparinux administration.

The reference to the chain is related to the part of the heparin molecule attached to the pentasaccharide sequence that is used in binding to antithrombin when exerting its antithrombotic effect.
