    Hello,

    I am editing a manuscript and I'm having trouble with how to hyphenate the term "low-molecular-weight heparin." Are the hyphens correct here, or should they be deleted? Or, should only the second hyphen be deleted? Any assistance would be great!

    If someone doesn't understand what that is, you ridicule them until they understand.
