We identified factors associated with thromboembolic and bleeding events in two contemporary cohorts of anticoagulated patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), treated with either vitamin K antagonists (VKA) or non-VKA oral anticoagulants (NOACs).

The incidence of thromboembolic events remains high in hospitalized medical patients, despite known risk factors and international recommendations regarding prevention of venous thromboembolism. Sever...
Characteristics, treatment and outcome of bleeding after tooth extraction in patients on DOAC and phenprocoumon compared to non-anticoagulated patients-a retrospective study of emergency department consultations.
Bleeding after tooth extraction range from minor bleeding to life-threating haemorrhagic shock and are among the leading complications in patients under oral anticoagulation with direct oral anticoagu...
In patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE), the goal of anticoagulation is to treat the current VTE and to prevent recurrent VTE. However, anticoagulation also imposes an increased risk for bleedin...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common cardiac arrhythmia that increases the risk of stroke. Medical therapy for decreasing stroke risk involves anticoagulation, which may increase bleeding risk for ...
Left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) offers an alternative to oral anticoagulation (OAC) for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The aim of this study was to present long-term clinical outcomes ...
Malignant hemopathies, such as solid cancers, increase the risk of venous and arterial thromboembolic events. The incidence of symptomatic venous thromboembolic events is particularly high...
This study aims to assess the 6- and 12-month VTE - and bleeding incidence from the start of cancerdiagnosis in a retrospective cohort of patients with esophageal cancer from a database of...
The purpose of this study is to determine different risk factors of thromboembolic disease. Different points will be studied 1. do different types of thromboembolic disease (distal DVT,...
Bleeding complications and thromboembolic complications are frequent during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Retrospective data suggest that platelet inhibition using prostaglan...
The purpose of this study is to collect information, after exposure to TachoSil ®, of all thromboembolic events, immunological events and drug interactions leading to thromboembolic event...
UTERINE BLEEDING from a GESTATION of less than 20 weeks without any CERVICAL DILATATION. It is characterized by vaginal bleeding, lower back discomfort, or midline pelvic cramping and a risk factor for MISCARRIAGE.
A specialty concerned with the nursing care of patients suffering from disorders of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM as well as those identified as at risk for adverse cardiac or vascular events.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
The process of minimizing risk to an organization by developing systems to identify and analyze potential hazards to prevent accidents, injuries, and other adverse occurrences, and by attempting to handle events and incidents which do occur in such a manner that their effect and cost are minimized. Effective risk management has its greatest benefits in application to insurance in order to avert or minimize financial liability. (From Slee & Slee: Health care terms, 2d ed)
Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
