The risk of complications in anticoagulation therapy can be reduced by maximising the percentage of time spent by the patient in the optimal therapeutic range (TTR). However, little is known about the...
Although anticoagulation with warfarin has been associated with increased risk of adverse outcomes after trauma, the effects of the new oral agents (NOA) such as dabigatran, apixaban, rivaroxaban are ...
The HAS-BLED, ATRIA, and HEMORR2HAGES risk scores were created to evaluate individual bleeding risk in atrial fibrillation (AF). We sought to estimate and compare the predictive ability of these score...
Children with conditions requiring chronic warfarin therapy have increased. The importance of receiving immunizations in this population is magnified due to potential weakness in their immune response...
Diverticular hemorrhage may be massive or recurrent, requiring surgical management. The aim of our study is to define risk factors that predict rebleeding or need for urgent operation in patients with...
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...
TACT is a "real world" randomized controlled trial of tecarfarin, a novel vitamin K antagonist, vs. warfarin. The quality of anticoagulation control will be compared for the two groups o...
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.
