Clinical Study Title:
Treatment of warfarin-associated coagulopathy with oral vitamin K: a randomised controlled trial.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This study examined the use of vitamin K supplements to treat coagulopathy associated with warfarin. Participants already receiving warfarin were given either an additional daily supplement of vitamin K or a placebo. The international normalized ratio was measured and compared across the two groups. Those patients who took the daily supplement of vitamin K had more improvement in their international normalized ratio than those taking the placebo. This suggests that the use of vitamin K with warfarin can help to control complications of treatment.|
