dc.description.abstract There is a lack of consistent recommendations regarding perioperative anticoagulant management among different disciplines and even within disciplines. With the growing rates of obesity seen in this country, with more prevalence in Mid-Missouri, the number of people requiring therapy with anticoagulants to reduce the comorbidities associated with obesity is on the rise. In order to better care for patients and improve patient health outcome, physicians need to understand and shift aspects of their practice to accommodate the evolving patient demographics. By reviewing current literature regarding perioperative management of patients under anticoagulant therapy, we wanted to assess the standard of care among different specialties. en_US
