IMPORTANCE The increased risk of hemorrhage associated with anticoagulant therapy following traumatic brain injury creates a serious dilemma for medical management of older patients: Should anticoagul...
Anticoagulation control with warfarin, as assessed by the international normalized ratio (INR), is challenging. Time in the therapeutic range (TTR) has been inversely correlated with major hemorrhage,...
The aim was to investigate the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in patients with ischemic stroke taking warfarin and whether this risk changed over time.
Guidelines recommend the assessment of stroke and bleeding risk before initiating warfarin anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation. Many of the elements used to predict stroke also overla...
Warfarin is the most commonly prescribed oral anticoagulant. The management of warfarin is challenging, and current guidelines fail to include a model to assist practitioners in optimizing therapeutic...
The main objective of this study is to assess the effectiveness of low dose Vitamin K1 (200 micrograms per day) at improving anticoagulation control in unstable patients on warfarin. This ...
Individuals taking warfarin often need frequent dose changes as the INR gets too high or too low which could result in a higher risk of thromboembolism, bleeding and early discontinuation ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if osteoporosis is an unrecognized complication of chronic anticoagulation with warfarin.
We are performing a research study to learn more about the control of an individual's blood thinning (anticoagulation) on warfarin. Individuals from an anticoagulation clinic are being as...
To test the hypothesis that home international normalised ratio (INR) monitoring with supervised patient self-testing (PST)can provide comparable or superior time in therapeutic range (TTR...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.
The application of molecular biology to the answering of epidemiological questions. The examination of patterns of changes in DNA to implicate particular carcinogens and the use of molecular markers to predict which individuals are at highest risk for a disease are common examples.
A scheme which provides reimbursement for the health services rendered, generally by an institution, and which provides added financial rewards if certain conditions are met. Such a scheme is intended to promote and reward increased efficiency and cost containment, with better care, or at least without adverse effect on the quality of the care rendered.
Reduction of high-risk choices and adoption of low-risk quantity and frequency alternatives.
Hemorrhage within the orbital cavity, posterior to the eyeball.
