: Patient provided oral consent.Authors were unable to get written consent because medically unnecessary, face-to-face clinic appointments were prohibited due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. At the time of submission of this report, patient was no longer followed in our clinic because he was changed to a different anticoagulant that does not require routine lab monitoring.This report poses no more than minimum risk. Risk of confidentiality breach is minimized because all patient data has been de-identified. If I am reading the guidance from Kyle correctly, waiving written consent and allowing for oral consent may be in line with US regulations given the minimum risk this report poses to patient.Attached with this submission is a document from one of our authors attesting that she received oral consent from the patient.
