Atrial fibrillation (AF) represents the most common arrhythmia in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). As in the general population, in CKD patients AF is associated with an increased risk of thromboembolism and stroke. However, CKD patients, especially those on renal replacement therapy (RRT), also exhibit an increased risk of bleeding, especially from the gastrointestinal tract. Oral anticoagulation is the most effective form of thromboprophylaxis in patients with AF presenting increased risk of stroke...

Aim To examine the choices Canadian family medicine residents make for oral anticoagulation (OAC) for patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF). BACKGROUND: AF increases the risk of strokes. An important consideration in AF management is risk stratification for stroke and prescription of appropriate OAC. Family physicians provide the vast majority of OAC prescriptions. METHODS: We administered a survey to residents in multiple Canadian family medicine training programmes...

Dabigatran etexilate (DE) is a direct thrombin inhibitor, which has been approved for the treatment of non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), and for the prevention and treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Despite large randomized clinical trials and independent observational studies providing robust data concerning DE safety and efficacy, some physicians still perceive mild-to-moderate renal impairment and old age as a relative contraindication to its use. In this article, we review the available scientific evidence supporting the use of DE in these clinical situations...

Vitamin K antagonist warfarin is widely used in clinical practice and excessive anticoagulation is a well-known complication of this therapy. Little is known about permanent and temporary predictors for severe overanticoagulation. The aim of this study was to investigate the occurrence and predicting factors for episodes with very high (≥9) international normalized ratio (INR) values in warfarin treated patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Excessive Warfarin Anticoagulation (EWA) study screened all patients (n = 13618) in the Turku University Hospital region with an INR ≥2 between years 2003-2015...

The review shows the prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), depending on the severity of the disease. Patients with non-valvular AF and CKD have a significantly increased risk of both bleeding and thromboembolic complications, and death from all causes. Evaluation of the results of randomized clinical trials (RCTs), meta-analyzes of RCTs demonstrated the advantages of the new oral anticoagulants (NOAC), such as dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, compared with warfarin in reducing the risk of bleeding in patients with AF and CKD in predialysis stage...

BACKGROUND: There is increasing evidence questioning the use of warfarin for atrial fibrillation (AF) among older adults with end stage renal disease (ESRD). We assessed the patterns and determinants of warfarin utilization among these patients in the US. METHODS: We assembled a cohort of older adults (age ≥65) undergoing dialysis with incident AF from July 2007 to November 2011 from the US Renal Data System (USRDS). We used descriptive statistics to characterize warfarin utilization within 30 days of AF discharge, and logistic regression to quantify patient characteristics associated with warfarin initiation...

INTRODUCTION: Few data are available about safety of vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) in patients with clinical/demographic characteristics predisposing to an increased risk of bleeding. We performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the safety of VKAs in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) or venous thromboembolism (VTE) in the following subgroups of "high-risk" patients: elderly patients, patients with low body weight and patients with impaired renal function. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Major electronic databases were systematically searched to identify randomized controlled trials (RCTs) addressing this issue...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an independent risk factor for stroke. It is most prevalent in the elderly and frequently coexists with heart failure (HF). The joint occurrence of AF and HF further worsens prognosis. The prevention of thromboembolism is crucial in the management of AF. In recent years, new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have been licensed for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with AF. Areas covered: This article reviews the key published studies on the pharmacology, clinical efficacy and safety of edoxaban, the latest NOAC to receive approval for the AF indication...

BACKGROUND: Patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD), including stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD), hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD), are at high risk for stroke-related morbidity, mortality and bleeding. The overall risk/benefit balance of warfarin treatment among patients with ESRD and AF remains unclear. METHODS: We systematically reviewed the associations of warfarin use and stroke outcome, bleeding outcome or mortality in patients with ESRD and AF...

The high risk of both stroke and major bleeding in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) defines an important population for whom the assessment of the balance between the risk of ischemic stroke and of bleeding is essential. The use of novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) may be a viable option in this population due to their greater net clinical benefit than warfarin, as demonstrated by the results of the clinical phase III trials. NOACs have been found to have a greater net clinical benefit than warfarin in patients at high risk of either stroke (CHADS2≥1 or CHA2DS2-VASc score≥2) or bleeding (HAS-BLED≥3)...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major risk factor for stroke in the elderly population. The use of anticoagulation in patients with AF greatly reduces the risk for stroke, but results in an increased risk of bleeding. Over the past several years, direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs, dabigatran, rivaroxaban, and apixaban) have been used in place of warfarin for stroke prevention in AF. We conducted a retrospective cohort study to assess the safety of DOACs in very elderly patients (75+) managed in a health care system encompassing both community and academic settings...

INTRODUCTION: Warfarin therapy for stroke prevention is recommended for patients with AF, but its value in patients with chronic kidney disease on HD is unknown. METHODS: The anticoagulation regimens of patients with a prior history of AF hospitalized for initiation of chronic HD, and of patients receiving chronic HD who had a new diagnosis of AF between 2009 and 2012 were reviewed. Exclusions were renal transplant, peritoneal dialysis, rheumatic valve disease, prosthetic heart valve, GI bleeding, malignancy with chemotherapy in last 6months or still undergoing treatment, a history of AF ablation, a history of ICD implantation, or those receiving warfarin for non-AF indications...

IMPORTANCE: Vitamin K antagonist (eg, warfarin) use is nowadays challenged by the non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF). NOAC studies were based on comparisons with warfarin arms with times in therapeutic range (TTRs) of 55.2% to 64.9%, making the results less credible in health care systems with higher TTRs. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of well-managed warfarin therapy in patients with nonvalvular AF, the risk of complications, especially intracranial bleeding, in patients with concomitant use of aspirin, and the impact of international normalized ratio (INR) control...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is highly prevalent in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients and associated with an increased risk of adverse outcomes. Our objectives were to study clinical features associated with CKD in AF patients and the impact of CKD on anticoagulation control, as reflected by time in therapeutic range (TTR). We also determined the impact of CKD and TTR in predicting adverse outcomes. METHODS AND RESULTS: We analysed pooled datasets from SPORTIF III and V trials, including 3646 patients assigned to warfarin with data on renal function...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: In the past, warfarin was the drug of choice for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Recently, non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have been approved as an alternative to warfarin in nonvalvular AF. However, there is a limited amount of real-world data on how NOACs are currently being used in Taiwan. This study was conducted to investigate the factors driving the initiation of anticoagulants and the selection of different anticoagulants in patients with AF...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are used for the prevention of thromboembolic complications in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) and those at risk of deep venous thrombosis. Their rapid onset of action and predictable pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles make them the optimal alternative to warfarin in the treatment of these two categories of patients. Unfortunately, however, NOACs cannot be used in patients with valvular AF or valvular cardiac prostheses...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) frequently occurs in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and the rate reaches even 30% in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Patients with AF and CKD have a significantly higher risk of thrombotic complications, particularly ischemic stroke, and at the same time, a higher bleeding risk (proportionally to the grade of renal failure). In addition, AF and CKD share a number of comorbidities and risk factors, which results in increased mortality rates. Moreover, disturbances in hemostasis are common complications of kidney disease...
