|- Brief summary||Vitamin K solution was used for several years to antagonize the treatment with vitamin K antagonists. Vitamin K tablets came into the market as 'vitamin tablets' instead of medicines, but are easier to distribute and do have a longer shelf life. However, they are not shown to be as effective as the oral solution. We perform this study to investigate whether the bioavailability and effectiveness of the tablets and solution are comparable. Patients are therefore recruited from the anticoagulation clinic in Leiden, the Netherlands.|
