Abstract

Identify  the  average  TTR  in  a  anticoagulation  clinic,  using  warfarin.  It  is  a  descriptive  observational  study conducted in the Anticoagulation Clinic of the University Hospital over a period of four months. The measurement of TTR occurred through the use of Rosendall method, from a historical series of results of the examination ratio normalized International ( RNI ) . Also, measuremented the degree of satisfaction with the clinic, we opted for the application of a structured questionnaire , not validated.  Most  patients  were  male,  with  an  indication  of  anticoagulation  for  more  than  one  year  and  motivated by the presence of atrial fibrillation. Although the study has identified that the user satisfaction regarding the services offered at the clinic was mostly positive (95.7%) , this does not mean that the target therapeutic range was being achieved . The TTR sample was around 54.62 %. The value of TTR average below 60% suggests the need to implement strategies that promote more adherence and understanding of the treatment.
