Abstract
The quality of treatment with warfarin is mainly assessed by the time in therapeutic range (TTR) in patients with mechanical heart valve prosthesis (MHV). Our aim was to evaluate if International Normalized Ratio (INR) variability predicted a combined endpoint of thromboembolism, major bleeding and death better than TTR.
