Abstract
The types of coumadin anticoagulants registered and available for use differ between countries. Most frequently used coumadin anticoagulants are warfarin and acenocoumarol. Under several specific conditions, transition from one coumarin to another is required. Because of different pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characteristics, the transition from one type of coumarol to another type can be challenging. There are no studies that address this issue in children. We present the case report of transition treatment between acenocoumarol and warfarin in a 12-year-old child with prosthetic mitral valve.
