Cohen, M., Antman, E. M., Gurfinkel, E., Turpie, A. G., Furst, J., Bigonzi, F., Radley, D. Impact of enoxaparin low molecular weight heparin in patients with Q-wave myocardial infarction Am J Cardiol. 2000;86(5):553-6, A9.

A subgroup meta-analysis from the Efficacy and Safety of Subcutaneous Enoxaparin in Non-Q-Wave Coronary Events (ESSENCE) and the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) 11B studies has shown that enoxaparin is superior to unfractionated heparin in reducing the composite end points of death, myocardial infarction, and emergency revascularization in patients with Q-wave myocardial infarction. The beneficial treatment effect was significant at 43 days.

Trial: TIMI 11B
