Heparin is indicated for the anticoagulant therapy, blood clot disorders, hemodialysis, and heart surgery. Heparin sodium, a glycosaminoglycan, inhibits the mechanisms that induce the clotting of blood and the formation of stable fibrin clots at various sites in the normal coagulation system. When heparin sodium is combined with anti-thrombin III (heparin cofactor), thrombosis is blocked through inactivation of activated Factor X and inhibition of prothrombin's conversion to thrombin. This also prevents fibrin formation from fibrinogen during active thrombosis.
