Four new oral anticoagulants have been approved for reducing stroke risk in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Compared with warfarin, these agents offer a more predictable dose response with fewer food and drug interactions and no regular blood monitoring, although some of the drugs have an increased risk of major gastrointestinal bleeding. This article reviews the new drugs.

Effectiveness of Nonvitamin K Antagonist Oral Anticoagulants and Warfarin for Preventing Further Cerebral Microbleeds in Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients with Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation and At Least One Microbleed: CMB-NOW Multisite Pilot Trial.
Nonvitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are considered superior, or at least noninferior, to warfarin in preventing stroke or systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrilla...
In randomized controlled trials (RCTs) direct acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs) showed a superior risk-benefit profile in comparison to vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) for patients with nonvalvular atri...
Direct oral anticoagulants are the first-line drugs for anticoagulation therapy in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). However, a real-world, large-scale, clinical study on edoxaban has not been p...
Little is known about national patterns of anticoagulant use among patients with atrial fibrillation after the availability of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) and the associated implications for he...
In England, the uptake of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation has been slow and varied across different Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). This study aim...
The purpose of this study is to establish a benchmark for rate of prescription of oral anticoagulants (OA) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) seen in an ambulatory ca...
Study of patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) who are newly prescribed NOACs (Novel Oral Anticoagulants) in routine clinical practice in England
The purpose of this study is to compare the risk of major bleeding event among nonvalvular atrial fibrillation patients treated with warfarin, apixaban, dabigatran and rivaroxaban.
Non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOAC) have been shown to be safe and effective alternatives to warfarin for stroke prevention in patients with nonvalvular AF (NVAF). There are yet limit...
We will compare long-term effectiveness and safety in patients with atrial fibrillation treated with left atrial appendage occlusion versus new oral anticoagulants to prevent ischemic stro...
A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.
A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)
A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
