There are limited data regarding clinical outcomes and healthcare resource utilization of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who are morbidly obese (body mass index >40 kg/m or body weight >120 kg).
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: American heart journal
Patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) often have multiple comorbidities requiring concomitant medications in addition to their oral anticoagulant (OAC). The objective of this study was ...
This study evaluated the trends in anticoagulation use after total hip arthroplasty (THA), and the effectiveness and safety of rivaroxaban compared to warfarin.
Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are at least as efficacious and safe as warfarin among non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients; limited evidence is available regarding NVAF patients with h...
Correction to: Efficacy and Safety of Rivaroxaban Compared With Warfarin Among Elderly Patients With Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation in the Rivaroxaban Once Daily, Oral, Direct Factor Xa Inhibition Compared With Vitamin K Antagonism for Prevention of Stroke and Embolism Trial in Atrial Fibrillation (ROCKET AF).
The management of anticoagulation therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and cancer is challenging due to increased thrombotic and bleeding risks. We sought to determine the safety and effi...
This prospective, randomized, active-controlled, parallel arm study compares the safety and financial benefits of arterial thromboembolism prophylaxis with Warfarin vs. Rivaroxaban (A nove...
Mechanical heart valves (MHV) demand lifelong anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists (VKA) due to the high thrombogenicity of the prosthesis. Rivaroxaban has previously been tested in ...
The purpose of this clinical randomized trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of rivaroxaban compared with warfarin in dissolving the LAA thrombus in patients with atrial fibrillati...
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.
With regard to Cerebral Venous Thrombosis (CVT) importance as a life threatening disease, specific care is necessary, Known anti-coagulants have limitations.Vitamin K antagonists such as W...
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.
Coded listings of physician or other professional services using units that indicate the relative value of the various services they perform. They take into account time, skill, and overhead cost required for each service, but generally do not consider the relative cost-effectiveness. Appropriate conversion factors can be used to translate the abstract units of the relative value scales into dollar fees for each service based on work expended, practice costs, and training costs.
Absolute, comparative, or differential costs pertaining to services, institutions, resources, etc., or the analysis and study of these costs.
The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).
The branch of pharmacology that deals directly with the effectiveness and safety of drugs in humans.
