New oral anticoagulants (OACs) and updated risk stratification have the potential to improve the quality of care for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). To describe the time from AF diagnosis to the initiation of an OAC, characteristics associated with treatment, and the incidence of switching OACs, we conducted this retrospective cohort study of 23,018 adults with incident AF receiving care between 2010 and 2014 in 647 primary care practices participating in the United Kingdom Clinical Practice Research Datalink...

BACKGROUND: The direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) reduce the risk of stroke in moderate to high-risk patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). Yet, concerns remain regarding its routine use in real world practice. We sought to describe adherence patterns and the association between adherence and outcomes to the DOACs among outpatients with AF. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients in the VA Healthcare System who initiated pharmacotherapy with dabigatran, rivaroxaban, or apixaban between November 2010 and January 2015 for non-valvular AF with CHA2DS2-VASc score ≥ 2...

No studies have performed direct pairwise comparisons of the effectiveness and safety of warfarin and the new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) apixaban, dabigatran, and rivaroxaban. Using 2013 to 2014 claims from a 5% random sample of Medicare beneficiaries, we identified patients newly diagnosed with atrial fibrillation who initiated apixaban, dabigatran, rivaroxaban, warfarin, or no oral anticoagulation therapy in 2013 to 2014. Outcomes included the composite of ischemic stroke, systemic embolism (SE) and death, any bleeding event, gastrointestinal bleeding, intracranial bleeding, and treatment persistence...

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) has a worldwide increasing incidence and prevalence, putting patients at risk for atrial thrombus formation and consecutive thromboembolic events. Morbidity and mortality have become a significant global public health care burden. Thus, there is increasing need for safe and effective medical prophylaxis of thromboembolic events. Edoxaban is the fourth approved non-vitamin K oral anticoagulant (NOAC) that has been introduced into the market for the prophylaxis of stroke or systemic embolism in non valvulär AF patients after dabigatran, rivaroxaban, and apixaban...

BACKGROUND: Comparative data of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOAC) are lacking in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). OBJECTIVE: We compared effectiveness and safety of standard and reduced dose NOAC in AF patients. METHODS: Using Danish nationwide registries, we included all oral anticoagulant-naïve AF patients who initiated NOAC treatment (2012-2016). Outcome-specific and mortality-specific multiple Cox regressions were combined to compute average treatment effects as 1-year standardized differences in stroke and bleeding risks (g-formula)...

BACKGROUND: Stroke is a major health concern throughout Latin America. As elsewhere, no precise cause can be determined for a substantial portion of strokes. In 6 studies since 2010 in the region, 16% to 43% of ischemic strokes were identified as cryptogenic. The term embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS) has been proposed as more clinically useful and positively defined than the vague term cryptogenic. The epidemiology of ESUS in Latin America is largely unknown. REVIEW SUMMARY: This article aims to provide a description of the epidemiology of ESUS in Latin America and practical information regarding available diagnostic procedures and current guidelines...

BACKGROUND: The use of non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) has increased steadily following marketing approval; however, their relative safety in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients in real-world clinical practice remains unclear. OBJECTIVE: To compare the risk of major bleeding during anticoagulation therapy between warfarin and NOACs. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study analyzed administrative claims data on new NVAF users of warfarin, dabigatran, apixaban, or rivaroxaban in routine clinical care from November 2010 to February 2015 in a commercially insured population in the United States...

Thrombosis after cessation of anticoagulation, also named rebound thrombosis, is a matter of concern and controversy. There are only few published data about occurrence of rebound thrombosis associated with non-vitamin K-antagonist oral anticoagulant drugs (NOACs). We report on a 58-year-old male with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) with a CHA2DS2VASC score of 4 who developed central pulmonary embolism four days after interruption of rivaroxaban because of parotid surgery. He had received 40 mg enoxaparin/d...

BACKGROUND: Data are limited on the safety of periprocedural anticoagulation with novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in patients undergoing pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) using the second-generation cryoballoon (CB) for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesized that the incidence of acute periprocedural complications in patients undergoing PVI do not differ between patients treated with VKA compared to NOACs. METHODS: In 200 consecutive patients (mean age, 64...

INTRODUCTION: The use of direct oral anticoagulants (NOAC) is complex: indications, dosage adjustments and precautions. Emergency departments (ED) are increasingly faced with patients receiving NOAC. The aim of this study was to evaluate the misuse and the adverse effects (AE) of NOAC. METHODS: All subjects with NOAC admitted to the Limoges University Hospital ED from 1/8/2013 to 1/4/2014 were included in a prospective observational study. Misuse was identified from the NOAC summary of product characteristics and from the 2014 ANSM guideline (indication, dose, co-medications, age, hepatic and renal function); adverse effects were recorded...

BACKGROUND: For some patients with atrial fibrillation, direct current cardioversion (DCCV) is one strategy that can be used to establish sinus rhythm but appropriate anticoagulation is mandatory to prevent thromboembolic events. Historically, patients were anticoagulated with warfarin with bridging with unfractionated or low molecular weight heparin, however, recently novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs), apixaban, dabigatran and rivaroxaban have become more popular. Despite the increase in use, real world data on safety and efficacy is limited...

REVIEW
D S Chadha, P Bharadwaj
Vitamin K antagonists are an effective group of oral anticoagulants. However because of genetic variability in their metabolism and multiple food and drug interactions, these drugs have narrow therapeutic window with unpredictable anticoagulant effects requiring constant monitoring. Several newer direct acting oral anticoagulants have been approved for prevention of stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation and treatment or prevention of venous thromboembolism. The direct acting oral anticoagulants include the direct thrombin inhibitor (dabigatran) and the factor Xa inhibitors (rivaroxaban, apixaban, and edoxaban)...
