The purpose

This study is about a drug called enoxaparin which is used to prevent or treat blood clots. There are no studies about the use of this drug in obese adolescents and yet the investigators use it to prevent clots when they have surgery at Children's National for weight loss. The investigators hypothesis is that the obesity leads to increased kidney size and faster drug clearance. Therefore the investigators think they might be underdosing these adolescents. This study will check the drug levels at different points after the drug dose to see whether the investigators are achieving the expected levels for prevention of clots.
