Patients with durable mechanical circulatory support are at increased risk of thromboembolic and bleeding complications. Current guidelines recommend that these patients receive chronic anticoagulation with warfarin to maintain a target international normalized ratio (INR) as specified by device manufacturers. Limited data exist regarding management of subtherapeutic INRs in this setting. To standardize clinical practice at our institution, we assembled a multidisciplinary task force including members from various specialties to develop a guideline for managing subtherapeutic INRs that incorporates published data and expert opinion. In this article, we present our clinical practice guideline as a decision support tool to aid clinicians in developing a consistent strategy for managing subtherapeutic INRs and for safely bridging anticoagulation in patients receiving mechanical circulatory support.
