Acute limb ischemia in a patient with pre-fibrotic myelofibrosis complicated by heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis - case report and systematic review of dabigatran use


Di Pilla, Marina; Barco, Stefano; Sacco, Clara; Barosi, Giovanni; Lodigiani, Corrado (2021). Acute limb ischemia in a patient with pre-fibrotic myelofibrosis complicated by heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis - case report and systematic review of dabigatran use. Vasa, 50(2):151-156.

Abstract

A 49-year-old man was diagnosed with pre-fibrotic myelofibrosis after acute left lower-limb ischemia requiring amputation and portal vein thrombosis. After surgery he developed heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) with venous thromboembolism, successfully treated with argatroban followed by dabigatran. Our systematic review of the literature supports the use of dabigatran for suspected HIT.
