Rivaroxaban is one of the direct non-vitamin K antagonists (DOACs) that is globally approved for single drug approach to treat venous thromboembolism (VTE). Its usage is growing quickly, given the practicality of single daily dose, no need for monitoring and a better safety profile compared with that of vitamin K antagonists (VKA). As real world experience with rivaroxaban accumulates, isolated reports regarding its ability to promote earlier and more intense venous recanalization compared with VKA treatment have been published...
