The purpose of the present study was to compare the efficacy and safety of dabigatran and interrupted warfarin with low-molecular-weight heparin bridging in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) catheter ablation. Previously, there has been concerns that bridging therapy increases bleeding events without the benefit of stroke prevention. It has been suggested that bridging therapy should be considered only for patients at high-risk of thrombosis. Nevertheless, bridging therapy in AF patients with a low CHADS2 score may be safe and effective...

There are few reports about the incidence and predictors of silent cerebral thromboembolic lesions (SCLs) after atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation in patients treated with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the incidence and predictors of SCLs after AF ablation with cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (C-MRI) in patients treated with DOACs. We enrolled 117 consecutive patients who underwent first AF ablation and received DOACs, including apixaban, dabigatran, edoxaban, and rivaroxaban...

BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation is typically performed with uninterrupted anticoagulation with warfarin or interrupted non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant therapy. Uninterrupted anticoagulation with a non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant, such as dabigatran, may be safer; however, controlled data are lacking. We investigated the safety of uninterrupted dabigatran versus warfarin in patients undergoing ablation of atrial fibrillation. METHODS: In this randomized, open-label, multicenter, controlled trial with blinded adjudicated end-point assessments, we randomly assigned patients scheduled for catheter ablation of paroxysmal or persistent atrial fibrillation to receive either dabigatran (150 mg twice daily) or warfarin (target international normalized ratio, 2...

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal solid malignancies with little treatment options. We have recently shown that expression of protease activated receptor (PAR)-1 in the tumor microenvironment drives progression and induces chemoresistance of pancreatic cancer. As thrombin is the prototypical PAR-1 agonist, here we addressed the effect of the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran on pancreatic cancer growth and drug resistance in an orthotropic pancreatic cancer model. We show that dabigatran treatment did not affect primary tumor growth whereas it significantly increased tumor dissemination throughout the peritoneal cavity...

BACKGROUND: Some patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) received underdoses of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in the real world. Underdosing is defined as administration of a dose lower than the manufacturer recommended dose. OBJECTIVES: To identify the efficacy and safety of underdosing NOACs as perioperative anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation ablation. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed patients who received rivaroxaban or dabigatran etexilate according to dosage: adjusted low dosage (reduced by disturbed renal function; n = 30), underdosage (n = 307), or standard dosage (n = 683)...

BACKGROUND: Warfarin is a well-established agent for use in the prevention of stroke or systemic embolic event (SEE) in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) and for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE). However, management of patients requiring oral anticoagulation with warfarin can be complicated by the need for frequent monitoring, drug-drug and drug-food interactions, and a variable response based on genetic polymorphisms. The non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) were developed as alternatives to warfarin; they do not require routine monitoring and have predictable pharmacokinetics, fewer drug-drug interactions, and limited drug-food interactions...

OBJECTIVES: Recent research has indicated that red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with the prognosis of cardiovascular diseases such as chronic heart failure and coronary heart disease. We aimed to study the predictive value of RDW for bleeding events in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) during the administration of 110 mg of dabigatran twice a day after catheter ablation. METHODS: One hundred and seventy-two NVAF patients who were hospitalized and received catheter ablation in Jiangsu Provincial People's Hospital from January 2014 to January 2015 were enrolled (110 mg of dabigatran was administered orally to outpatients preoperatively twice a day for 3 weeks)...

Atrial fibrillation is a supraventricular arrhythmia that adversely affects cardiac function and increases the risk of stroke. It is the most common arrhythmia and a major source of morbidity and mortality; its prevalence increases with age. Pulse rate is sensitive, but not specific, for diagnosis, and suspected atrial fibrillation should be confirmed with 12-lead electrocardiography. Because normal electrocardiographic findings do not rule out atrial fibrillation, home monitoring is recommended if there is clinical suspicion of arrhythmia despite normal test results...

BACKGROUND: Safety regarding switching from vitamin K antagonist (VKA) to dabigatran therapy in post-ablation patients has never been investigated and safety data for this is urgently needed. The objective of this study was to examine if switch from VKA to dabigatran increased the risk of stroke, bleeding, and death in patients after ablation for atrial fibrillation. METHODS: Through the Danish nationwide registries, patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation undergoing ablation were identified, in the period between August 22nd 2011 and December 31st 2015...

BACKGROUND: The use of non-vitamin K antagonists (NOACs), uninterrupted (uVKA) and interrupted vitamin K antagonists (iVKA) are common periprocedural oral anticoagulation (OAC) strategies for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. Comparative data on complication rates resulting from OAC strategies for solely persistent AF (persAF) undergoing ablation are sparse. Thus, we sought to determine the impact of these OAC strategies on complication rates among patients with persAF undergoing catheter ablation...

The presence of spontaneous echo contrast (SEC) in the left atrium has been reported to be an independent predictor of thromboembolic risk in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Dabigatran was associated with lower rates of stroke and systemic embolism as compared with warfarin when administered at a higher dose. Between July 2011 and October 2015, nonvalvular AF patients treated with warfarin or dabigatran who had transesophageal echocardiography prior to ablation therapy for AF were enrolled. The intensity of SEC was classified into four grades, from 0 to 3...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: During atrial fibrillation ablation, heparin is required and is guided by the activated clotting time (ACT). Differences in the ACT before ablation and adequate initial heparin dosing in patients receiving non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) were examined. METHODS: Patients who received warfarin (control, N = 90), dabigatran etexilate (N = 90), rivaroxaban (N = 90) and apixaban (N = 90) were studied. A 100 U/kg dose of heparin was administered as a reliable control dose for warfarin, and the remaining patients were randomly administered 110, 120 or 130 U/kg of heparin in each NOAC group, followed by a continuous heparin infusion...

BACKGROUND: We previously reported that dabigatran increased the risk of microthromboembolism and hemopericardium compared with warfarin. The safety of non-vitamin-K-antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in the periprocedural use of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation is controversial. This study aimed to compare the incidence of asymptomatic cerebral microthromboembolism and hemopericardium in AF ablation among periprocedural use of rivaroxaban, apixaban, and warfarin. METHODS AND RESULTS: This study was a prospective, randomized registry...

INTRODUCTION: Novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have been approved for prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). A large number of patients are on NOACs when they present for AF ablation. We intended to evaluate the safety and efficacy of NOACs for AF ablation during the periprocedural period by performing a meta-analysis of trials comparing NOACs with warfarin. METHODS: Studies comparing NOACs (dabigatran and rivaroxaban) with warfarin as periprocedural anticoagulants for AF ablation were identified using an electronic search...
