There is no literature demonstrating that one therapy is clinically better than the other.
The use of anticoagulation is at the discretion of the prescribing physician.

Failure to observe all warnings and precautions noted in the Streamline Instructions for Use may result in serious complications, including blood loss due to clotting or air entering the bloodstream.
