Abstract

Self-monitoring of anti-vitamin K treatment by patients with heart valve prostheses is a good alternative to hospital control. Self-monitoring at home allows patients more freedom and opportunity to take greater responsibility for their treatment. Experience from over a years' complication-free treatment of 12 patients is reported in the article.
