Cirrhotic patients have bleeding tendencies due to the lack of coagulation factors and thrombocytopenia. However, decreased levels of procoagulants are also accompanied by decreased levels of natural anticoagulants. However, there have been contrasting reports. It has been reported that patients with cirrhosis are at risk for thrombotic complications, including portal vein thrombosis and venous thromboembolism. Physicians consider active anticoagulation for prophylaxis and treatment of portal vein thrombosis and/or venous thromboembolism in cirrhotic patients with high risk of thrombosis. Concurrently, there are safety concerns regarding the risk of bleeding from anticoagulants in people with advanced liver disease. Further prospective studies are required to determine not only if cirrhotic patients benefit from receiving anticoagulation therapy for preventing thrombotic complications, but also to determine which prophylactic regimen is most appropriate.
