This research aims to discuss the clinical efficacy of Maizhiling combined with low molecular weight heparin calcium in the treatment of deep vein thrombosis after spinal cord injury, in the meantime to discuss the effects of the drug combination on coagulation function, hemodynamics and clinical safety. We chose 40 patients with deep vein thrombosis after spinal cord injury in our hospital as the study cohort divided them into control group (n=20) and observation group (n=20) randomly. The control group received low molecular weight heparin calcium subcutaneous injections while the observation group received low molecular weight heparin calcium intravenous infusion of low molecular weight heparin calcium and oral Maizhiling. Then make a contrast of the affected limbs detumescence time, lower limb circumference, coagulation parameters, overall response rate, incidence of complications and adverse drug reactions after treatment between both groups. After treatment, the observation group’s swelling time and the average difference of lower limb circumference were significantly reduced (p<0.01), prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time and D-dimer both were significantly lower (p<0.01) and the clinical effective rate was higher (p<0.05). Both groups incidence of complications and adverse drug reactions have no significant difference (p>0.05). Low molecular weight heparin calcium combined with Maizhiling is effective on spinal cord injury deep vein thrombosis patients. The lower extremity swelling time is significantly shortened, the blood coagulation function and blood viscosity are improved, and the adverse drug incidence and complications are not increased. The combined use is used to treat patients with deep vein thrombosis. It is worth widely using in clinical practice.
