We performed a multicenter, observational, prospective study of a registry of patients undergoing AF ablation in 8 centers in North America. Patients taking uninterrupted periprocedural rivaroxaban were matched by age, sex, and type of AF with an equal number of patients taking uninterrupted warfarin therapy who were undergoing AF ablation during the same period.

Unusual clinical course.
As the growing population needs to receive antithrombotic therapy, perioperative management of anti- thrombotic therapy, with anticoagulation and/or antiplatelet has become a major concern to physicians taking care of surgical patients. Balancing the risk of bleeding with continuation and thrombosis with discontinuation requires consideration of each patient's risks for thrombotic complications and probability of bleeding in surgical procedures. Warfarin has been a mainstay of chronic anticoagulation therapy, and patients receiving warfarin need interruption of warfarin prior to the surgery and a preoperative bridge therapy with an alternative anticoagulant, typically unfractionated or low molecular weight heparin. The novel oral anticoagulants including dabigatran, rivaroxaban, edoxaban and apixaban have shorter half-lives and may not need the preoperative bridge therapy. However they raised other concerns for perioperative management including prolonged elimination half-life in patients with compromised kidney, poor correlation between routine laboratory tests and clinical effectiveness of anticoagulation or lack of a specific antidote.

The adjusted RR of UGIB associated with current use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) for more than 1 month was 0.58 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.42-0.79) among patients who received low-dose acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), 0.18 (95% CI, 0.04-0.79) for clopidogrel, 0.17 (95% CI, 0.04-0.76) for dual antiplatelet therapy, 0.48 (95% CI, 0.22-1.04) for warfarin, and 0.51 (95% CI, 0.34-0.78) for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The corresponding estimates for therapy with histamine-2-receptor antagonists (H2RAs) were more unstable, but tended to be of a smaller magnitude. In the general population, PPI use was associated with a reduced risk of UGIB compared with nonuse (RR, 0.80; 95% CI, 0.68-0.94); no such reduction was observed for H2RAs or nitrates.

Peak pressure gradient averaged to 66.0 ± 28.2 mmHg preoperatively, and decreased to 23.4 ± 10.7, 13.8 ± 5.5 and 13.3 ± 2.3 mmHg, 1 week, 1 year, and 3 years after the operation, respectively. No calcification was detected with echocardiographic follow-up. Recurrence of AR was not recorded with the mean follow-up of 847 days except for 1 case reoperated on for infective endocarditis 2.5 years after the operation. Three hospital deaths were recorded due to non-cardiac causes. Other patients were in good condition. There was no thromboembolic event.

A systematic search of Medline (1950 to November 2009), Scopus, Embase, Web of Science, Cochrane databases, Dissertation and American College of Rheumatology meeting abstracts was performed to identify original randomized controlled trials, case reports, observational studies, editorials, or dissertations reporting AE from topical NSAID in older adults with OA. Information was sought on study and participant characteristics, detailed recording of application site, and systemic AE as well as withdrawals due to AE.

Although a rare, yet likely under-reported complication of post-transcatheter aortic valve implantation, progressive dyspnea coupled with an increasing transvalvular gradient on echocardiography within the months following the intervention likely signifies valve thrombosis. While direct thrombus visualization appears difficult, prompt initiation of oral anticoagulation therapy effectively restores baseline valve function.

The effects of 110 mg dabigatran and 150 mg dabigatran twice daily in patients with previous stroke or transient ischaemic attack are consistent with those of other patients in RE-LY, for whom, compared with warfarin, 150 mg dabigatran reduced stroke or systemic embolism and 110 mg dabligatran was non-inferior. [corrected] Most effects of both dabigatran doses were consistent in patients with versus those without previous stroke or transient ischaemic attack.

Patients with specific MHCs (bipolar disorder, depression, and other psychotic disorders) experienced slightly worse anticoagulation control. Patients with any MHC had a slightly increased hazard for major hemorrhage, but the magnitude of this difference is unlikely to be clinically significant. Overall, our results suggest that appropriately selected patients with MHCs can safely receive therapy with warfarin.

Hemorrhagic transformation (HT) increases the morbidity and mortality of ischemic stroke. Anticoagulation is often indicated in patients with atrial fibrillation, low ejection fraction, or mechanical valves who are hospitalized with acute stroke, but increases the risk of HT. Risk quantification would be useful. Prior studies have investigated risk of systemic hemorrhage in anticoagulated patients, but none looked specifically at HT. In our previously published work, age, infarct volume, and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) significantly predicted HT. We created the hemorrhage risk stratification (HeRS) score based on regression coefficients in multivariable modeling and now determine its validity in a prospectively followed inpatient cohort.A total of 241 consecutive patients presenting to 2 academic stroke centers with acute ischemic stroke and an indication for anticoagulation over a 2.75-year period were included. Neuroimaging was evaluated for infarct volume and HT. Hemorrhages were classified as symptomatic versus asymptomatic, and by severity. HeRS scores were calculated for each patient and compared to actual hemorrhage status using receiver operating curve analysis.Area under the curve (AUC) comparing predicted odds of hemorrhage (HeRS score) to actual hemorrhage status was 0.701. Serum glucose (P < 0.001), white blood cell count (P < 0.001), and warfarin use prior to admission (P = 0.002) were also associated with HT in the validation cohort. With these variables, AUC improved to 0.854. Anticoagulation did not significantly increase HT; but with higher intensity anticoagulation, hemorrhages were more likely to be symptomatic and more severe.The HeRS score is a valid predictor of HT in patients with ischemic stroke and indication for anticoagulation.

This was a cross-sectional study using the data of 2009 from National Patients Sample compiled by the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service. Patients with high risk of thromboembolism were identified with congestive heart failure, hypertension, age ≥75 years, diabetes, and prior stroke (CHADS2) score ≥2. High-risk patients of bleeding were excluded using Anticoagulation and Risk Factors in Atrial Fibrillation (ATRIA) score >4. Warfarin and antithrombotic therapy underutilization were defined and estimated in high-risk patients. Any demographic and clinical factors associated with warfarin and antithrombotic therapy underutilization were explored using a logistic regression model.

Forty patients and 47 vitamin K administrations were included in the pre-education group, and 34 patients and 49 vitamin K administrations were included in the post-education group. The number of patients with appropriate vitamin K administrations improved after pharmacist education (25% pre-education vs 55.8% post-education; P = .01). Whereas 27.6% of individual vitamin K administrations were appropriate in the pre-education group, this increased to 63.2% in the post-education group (P = .04).

Venous thromboembolism is a major global health burden. Since the 1930s, prevention of stroke and pulmonary embolism in these patients has been achieved using conventional anticoagulants, such as heparin and warfarin. However, in recent years, four direct non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have entered the market as alternative treatment options. Betrixaban is a fifth DOAC looking to gain marketing approval in the near future, and may have several potentially beneficial properties. Areas covered: Here, we outline the metabolism, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of betrixaban, and summarise its clinical efficacy and safety based on the results of phase II/III trials. Expert commentary: Betrixaban has been demonstrated to have antithrombotic activity that may make it a valuable addition to the repertoire of DOACs currently available. The low renal clearance and minimal hepatic metabolism of the drug may make it particularly beneficial for patients with renal or hepatic dysfunction. The lack of an effective reversal agent may be a more significant issue for betrixaban compared with the already approved DOACs as it has a longer terminal half-life. Available data suggest that continued development of betrixaban is justified; however, further large randomised clinical trials are essential in order to clarify its efficacy and safety.

Central nervous system (CNS) hemorrhage is a potentially life-threatening condition, especially in patients with acquired coagulopathy. In this setting, treatment of CNS bleeding includes hemostatic therapy to replenish coagulation factors. There is currently a debate over the hemostatic efficacy of plasma in many clinical settings, alongside increasing concern about transfusion-associated adverse events. Despite these concerns, plasma is widely used. Moreover, plasma transfusion practice is variable and there is currently no uniform approach to treatment of traumatic, surgical or spontaneous CNS hemorrhage. This study addresses the need for guidance on the indications and potential risks of plasma transfusion in these settings. An Expert Consensus Panel was convened to develop recommendations guiding the use of plasma to treat bleeding and/or coagulopathy associated with CNS hemorrhage. The panel did not advise on the best treatment available but rather proposed recommendations to be used in the formulation of local procedures to support emergency physicians in their decision-making process.

For base-case patients with a CHADS2 score of 3, the cost per additional quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) gained for rivaroxaban compared with no prevention, aspirin, aspirin plus clopidogrel and warfarin was $116,884, $153,944, $155,979 and $216,273, respectively. CHADS2 score had a substantial impact on the model outcomes for different prevention strategies. The time distribution of warfarin international normalised ratio (INR), stroke and intracranial haemorrhage (ICH) risks, cost of rivaroxaban and utility of warfarin therapy had substantial impacts on the results. Based on a willingness-to-pay threshold of $16,350/QALY, no prevention strategy was the preferred therapy for a patient with a low risk for stroke and a high risk for ICH; aspirin was preferred for patients with a moderate risk for stroke and ICH; and warfarin was preferred for patients with a high risk for stroke and a low risk of ICH.

The incidence of arterial thrombosis in patients with protein C deficiency is relatively low compared with that of venous thrombosis. To our knowledge, there is no previously published report of a protein C deficiency patient with simultaneous thromboses in the pulmonary artery and innominate artery in the English literature. We present a case of a protein C deficiency in which the presence of concurrent clots in the pulmonary arteries and innominate artery demonstrated on a pulmonary computed tomographic angiography provided an important clue permitting diagnosis of the deficiency.
