MULETT-VASQUEZ, Edelberto; MARIN-MARMOLEJO, Juan Carlos  and  MARIN-URIBE, Jorge. Use of prothrombin complex concentrate in lower gastrointestinal bleeding in a critical anticoagulated patient: A case report. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.4, pp.252-255. ISSN 1018-130X.

We present the case of a 60-year-old male patient anticoagulated with warfarin who presented with lower gastrointestinal bleeding and hemodynamic instability due to ischemic colitis with high INR after being surgically intervened with Bentall´s procedure and aortic valve replacement with a metallic prosthesis. Treatment with prothrombin complex concentrate was started with good response.

Keywords : Gastrointestinal hemorrhage; colitis ischemic; anticoagulants.
