(54.) Folwaczny C, Wiebecke B, Loeschke K: Unfractioned heparin in the therapy of patients with highly active inflammatory bowel disease.

Unfractioned heparin (UFH) is administered subcutaneously or intravenously.
The practice guideline of the Dutch College of General Practitioners does not recommend any specific treatment, but a recently published guideline of the American College of Chest Physicians advocates the use of an intermediate dosage of unfractioned heparin or low molecular-weight heparin for at least 4 weeks--they based this conclusion, however, on an unclear risk/benefit ratio.
