Cost analysis was incomplete in these trials; however, elimination of even a single hospital day by use of low-molecular-weight heparin would be likely to yield a savings. In our community, the cost of low-molecular-weight heparin ranges from approximately $100 to $150 per day. The average cost of treating a patient with uncomplicated DVT is reduced by approximately $5,000 to $8,000 when using low-molecular-weight heparin instead of standard heparin therapy. It is likely that additional studies will yield important information on the cost savings of treatment with low-molecular-weight heparin.
