Abstract

We describe the successful management of argatroban in non-obstructive mechanical heart valve thrombosis in a context of heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) type II. A 77-year-old female with permanent atrial fibrillation and mechanical heart valve developed an asymptomatic non obstructive thrombus of mechanical mitral heart valve diagnosed while she was under argatroban for acute HIT type II. Total disappearance of thrombus was achieved with a medical antithrombotic strategy combining increase of argatroban and VKA dosages and implementation of an antiplatelet treatment with aspirin.
