Use of enoxaparin in the setting of warfarin induced calciphylaxis in an
ESRD patient with a mechanical heart valve
AbstractCalciphylaxis creates a challenge in anticoagulation therapy for
patients with mechanical heart valves and ESRD as warfarin cannot be
used. We describe our approach in using enoxaparin as an alternative for
anticoagulation in a patient with a mechanical heart valve and ESRD who
developed calciphylaxis from warfarin.
