Recent data from randomized trials have provided a clear understanding of the effectiveness and safety of differing long-term anticoagulant therapies for proximal vein thrombosis. An issue that has not been addressed is their cost-effectiveness. We have performed a cost-effectiveness analysis to rank alternative approaches for long-term therapy. Less intense oral anticoagulant therapy using warfarin sodium is the most cost-effective approach and is preferred in the majority of patients.
