The site of the procedure should be observed for signs of bleeding or hematoma formation [see Dosage and Administration 2. For subcutaneous use, Lovenox should not be mixed with other injections or infusions.

When administered at recommended prophylaxis doses, routine coagulation tests such as Prothrombin Time PT and Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time aPTT are relatively insensitive measures of Lovenox activity and, therefore, unsuitable for monitoring. Based on animal data, enoxaparin is not predicted to increase the risk of major developmental abnormalities [see Data ]. All patients were also treated with aspirin to mg per day.


All patients receiving anticoagulants, including pregnant women, are at risk for bleeding.

Clinical Considerations Pregnancy alone confers an increased risk for thromboembolism that is even higher for women with thromboembolic disease and certain high risk pregnancy conditions.

In a double-blind, parallel group study of patients undergoing elective cancer surgery of the gastrointestinal, urological, or gynecological tract, a total of patients were enrolled in the study, and patients were treated.
