Innohep; tinzaparin sodium 


Innohep is used together with another drug, warfarin, to treat blood clots that have occurred deep in the veins of hospitalized patients who may or may not have also experienced the occurrence of blood clots in their lungs (pulmonary embolism).

Deep venous thrombosis (or DVT) is the occlusion of a deep vein by a blood clot ("thrombus"). It generally affects the leg veins, such as the femoral vein or the popliteal vein, or occasionally the veins of the arm ("Paget-von Schroetter syndrome"). Thrombophlebitis is the more general class of pathologies of this kind.
