Answer

A second Cochrane review published in 2013 added, among others, a large randomized control study that included more than 3000 patients with superficial thrombophlebitis and compared fondaparinux with placebo. The investigators found fondaparinux to be a good option for treatment of superficial thrombophlebitis and prevention of some of its associated complications. [26]
