Abstract

Calciphylaxis creates a challenge in anticoagulation therapy for patients with mechanical heart valves and ESRD as warfarin cannot be used. We describe our approach in using enoxaparin as an alternative for anticoagulation in a patient with a mechanical heart valve and ESRD who developed calciphylaxis from warfarin.
