Benefits and Risks of Anticoagulation Resumption Following Traumatic Brain Injury.

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...

A National Assessment of Warfarin Anticoagulation Therapy for Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation.

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,...

Warfarin-Associated Intracerebral Hemorrhage After Ischemic Stroke.

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.

The Predictive Ability of the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc Scores for Bleeding Risk in Atrial Fibrillation: The MAQI(2) Experience.

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...

VKORC1 and CYP2C9 genotypes in Egyptian patients with warfarin resistance.

Warfarin is the most commonly prescribed anticoagulant drug; however, a narrow therapeutic range and a high risk of bleeding or stroke complicate its clinical use. Warfarin resistance was defined as p...

Low Dose Supplementation to Improve Anticoagulation Control With Oral Vitamin K as an Adjuvant to Warfarin Therapy

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...

Clarification of Optimal Anticoagulation Through Genetics

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...

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.
