Right, the title says LMWH and I'm wondering if they should have just said enoxaparin. Is LMWH and enoxaparin the same thing?

Enoxaparin is a drug in the sub-class of drugs known as low-molecular weight heparins.

Enoxparin is one a several formulations of LMWH. But I think it’s the most widely used.

Also unless your wife has lower extremity fractures this article doesn’t apply to her so she can rest easy.
