We evaluated whether percent time in target range (PTTR), risk of over-anticoagulation [international normalized ratio (INR)>4], and risk of hemorrhage differ by race. As PTTR is a strong predictor of...
Mechanical valve replacement is associated with positive outcomes, but patients must undergo life-long anticoagulation therapy with warfarin, which carries a significant risk of bleeding complications...
The increase in the risk for bleeding associated with antithrombotic therapy causes a dilemma in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who sustain an intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). A thrombotic risk ...
Anticoagulant medications are frequently used to prevent and treat thromboembolic disease. However, the benefits of anticoagulants must be balanced with a careful assessment of the risk of bleeding co...
Anticoagulation clinics have been considered the optimal strategy for warfarin management with demonstrated improved patient outcomes through increased time in therapeutic INR range, decreased critica...
This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of warfarin anticoagulation in the very old and attempt to identify risk factors which may impede safe and effective anticoagulat...
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 international normalized ratio (INR) gets too high or too low which could result in a higher risk of thromboembolism, bl...
Background: Time in therapeutic range (TTR) is a measurement of quality of warfarin therapy and lower TTR values (
Warfarin is a commonly used blood thinner to treat and prevent blood clots. It is important to take the right dose of warfarin because too much can increase the risk of bleeding and too li...
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.
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.
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.
Reduction of high-risk choices and adoption of low-risk quantity and frequency alternatives.
