Özet

Introduction: Procoagulant activity of heparanase has been recently described in several arterial and venous thrombotic disorders. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of heparanase with regard to thrombus burden, thromboembolism, and treatment success with unfractionated heparin (UFH) in patients with prosthetic valve thrombosis (PVT).
