PMID:  9212355     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSION: in orthopaedic surgery, LMWH is significantly superior to both UFH and warfarin in the prevention of DVT and results in significantly less minor bleeding complications when compared to UFH, but significantly more minor bleeding when compared to warfarin.
