    Hate To Burst The Lawyers Bubble, But THOR Was Cleared Of Wrong doing By ...

    Dr. Starling of The Cleveland Clinic who is quoted ...

    "I think that we and other centers in general relaxed ... to some degree our anticoagulation based on some reports that appeared in the literature," Starling said. "And we've gone back to following the manufacturer's recommendations completely: running the INRs between 2 and 3, using baby aspirin, [and] starting heparin 24 hours postop and not letting the patient come off heparin until the INR is therapeutic."

    • To me it was a contrived short stunt. Four publications hit with the same store, different details, different people interviewed, on the same day? About a topic, that they really ALREADY new the answer too, but NOBODY included?? How does that happen??? All four writers, got the same idea at the same time, completed their stories, got them through editing and publishing, and they all hit the same day, and did not include the ANSWER, we already KNEW???? Seems like a contrived, and orchestrated short attack. :-( All for MONEY, who cares if we scare the XXXX out of patients.

    • I showed the article and quote to one of my children who is an international attorney and speaks quite a few foreign languages and the conclusion is there is no case. Dr. Starling pulled the pot of gold away.
