Q: What is the clinical significance of rising AST and ALT after initiation of Heparin

Answer:  None

Elevation of serum aminotransferase levels are very common and reported in as many as 80% of patients receiving heparin. To note, this abnormality is not associated with liver dysfunction, and it disappears after the drug is discontinued.
