It was hoped that the LMWHs might be particularly effective for prolonged therapy in patients at high risk for recurrent ischemic events. However, this has not been substantiated with a 3-mo study of twice daily dalteparin, compared with placebo (FRISC II) showing a reduction in the composite end point of death and MI at 1 mo, which was not sustained at 6-mo follow-up (52). Another study (TIMI 11B) of prolonged enoxaparin for 35 d after initial stabilization demonstrated no incremental benefit for prolonged therapy, with an increased risk of major bleeding (44).
