How long do you wait until you restart Coumadin/Plavix,etc on a patient that has been off Coumadin for 5days for the implant and had a 1.1 ?

I was thinking waiting 24 hours.

what if they are on lovenox - and you have them stop for the appropriate amount of time for the trial. Can they take it with the leads in (on QD prevention dose, not treatment)?
