Abstract
Since its discovery in 1916, heparin has been used extensively for treatment of thromboembolic disorders. Bleeding is its most well-known and frequent complication. We are describing the first case report of overt pulmonary hemorrhage in a patient who received heparin after emergent angioplasty for prevention of coronary artery rethrombosis.
