  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Peak Low Molecular Weight Heparin Anti-Xa Activity Level.   [ Time Frame: 4 - 6 hours after enoxaparin dosing on Day 1 and Day 2 ]

2.  Secondary:   Clinically Relevant Bleeding Events   [ Time Frame: Participants were followed for the duration of hospital stay, an average of 5 days ]

  Serious Adverse Events

  Other Adverse Events

  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
This study was limited by a relatively small sample size, lack of long-term clinical outcome data, and the use of only a single anti-Xa level, rather than repeat measures.
