Rahiminejad, Mohammad Saeed; Sharifkazemi, Mohammad Bagher & Sotoudeh, Kambiz
Patients with thalassemia intermedia have an increased risk of thrombotic events as compared to the general population.
Case Presentation:We describe two cases of thalassemia intermedia with intracardiac thrombi who failed to response to traditional anticoagulation therapy with Unfractionated Heparin and Aspirin; but thrombolysis occurred following combination therapy with Ticlopidine and Enoxaparin.
Our experience in patients shown combination of Enoxaparin and Ticlopidine is effective for treatment of ventricular thrombus in TI patients.
