The effect of rapid anticoagulation reversal on mortality and functional outcome in vitamin K antagonist-associated intracerebral hemorrhage (VKA-ICH) is uncertain. Given the approval of idarucizumab for dabigatran reversal and pending approval for andexanet alfa for reversal of factor Xa inhibitors, a systematic appraisal of the effectiveness of reversal for VKA-ICH would provide a bench mark for current practice. We performed PubMed searches and reviewed current guidelines. Using pre-specified inclusion and exclusion criteria, studies were reviewed by two physicians independently...

INTRODUCTION: Warfarin- and superwarfarin-type anticoagulants are commonly used as rodenticides. Exposure to these agents, especially superwarfarins with long-acting anticoagulant effect, can cause life-threatening coagulopathy in humans. Most superwarfarin poisoning cases had an obvious history of exposure, though occult cases without exposure history have also been reported. The current study aims to examine anticoagulant-type rodenticide poisoning in Hong Kong and to identify the similarities and differences between patients with known exposure history and those whose exposure is recognized only through laboratory testing...

Several drug interaction compendia report a risk of warfarin potentiation after initiation of a fibrate; however, the evidence of this interaction is limited. The objective of this study was to evaluate warfarin dose and international normalized ratio (INR) response among a large sample of patients receiving chronic warfarin who initiated a fibrate. This was a retrospective, one-sample, pre-to-post study. Adult patients who were receiving chronic warfarin therapy at the time of gemfibrozil or fenofibrate dispensing between 1/1/2000 and 3/31/2016 were included...

BACKGROUND: Mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP) is a method that combines cognitive behavioral relapse prevention with mindfulness practice. Research shows that MBRP can effectively reduce negative emotions and craving in people with substance use disorders (SUDs). An important part of MBRP is to practice mindfulness meditation to cope with high-risk situations for relapse, such as stimuli and situations associated with drug taking. Virtual reality cue exposure (VRCE) may be a complementary approach to MBRP as it allows for controlled and graded presentations of various high-risk situations with distal and proximal drug cues...

Background: A left ventricular (LV) thrombus is detected in approximately 5-10% of patients after myocardial infarction (MI). If left untreated, these LV thrombi carry a significant risk of complications including embolic stroke. According to current guidelines, anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists (VKA) is recommended to treat a LV thrombus. Case presentation: An 87 year old patient was referred to our department with non ST-elevation MI. Five months before, he had been diagnosed with a subacute ST elevation MI, which had been treated conservatively...
