Vitamin K

Helps Decrease Bleeding.

Clinical Study Title:
Vitamin K reduces bleeding in left ventricular assist device recipients.

Plain English Summary:
This study looked at the use of vitamin K supplements prior to surgery on the recovery after the surgery. Participants in this study had an implant of left ventricular assist device. A total of 66 participants were examined, and 39 of them had received the vitamin K supplement before surgery. Those participants who were given the vitamin K preoperatively had less postoperative bleeding. This suggests the use of vitamin K supplements to help improve coagulation action during and after major surgeries.
