Summary of "Four-year trends in oral anticoagulant use and declining rates of ischemic stroke among 194,030 atrial fibrillation patients drawn from a sample of 12 million people."

Administrative data were used to investigate changes in hospitalizations for atrial fibrillation (AF), AF-related stroke, and treatment patterns between 2012 and 2016.

Race/Ethnicity and Sex-Related Differences in Direct Oral Anticoagulant Initiation in Newly Diagnosed Atrial Fibrillation: A Retrospective Study of Medicare Data.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart rhythm disorder and is associated with a 5-fold increased risk of ischemic stroke. Racial/ethnic minorities and women with AF have higher rates of str...

Oral Anticoagulant Prescription Trends, Profile Use, and Determinants of Adherence in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation.

Data on oral anticoagulant (OAC) uptake and pattern of use is limited. Real-life data in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is important for understanding patient exposure. A cohort study of new O...

Novel Oral Anticoagulant versus Warfarin in Cancer Patients with Atrial Fibrillation: An 8-Year Population-Based Cohort Study.

Cancer patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) were excluded in the major clinical trials. We therefore investigated the efficacy and safety of novel oral anticoagulant (NOAC) versus warfarin in these ...

Timing of Initiation of Oral Anticoagulation after Acute Ischemic Stroke in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation.

Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who suffer an acute ischemic stroke are at risk for both hemorrhagic transformation and recurrent ischemic stroke in the acute post-stroke period. Oral anticoagu...

Effects of oral anticoagulants on ≥90-year-old atrial fibrillation patients: comparison among direct oral anticoagulant, warfarin anticoagulant, and non-anticoagulation.

This study aimed to investigate the effects of anticoagulants on ultra-aged patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). We retrospectively studied 320 consecutive AF patients (median age, 91 ...

Use of Anticoagulant, and Associated Factors of Anticoagulant Refusal Atrial Fibrillation Patients

Atrial fibrillation is a clinically significant cardiac arrhythmia that increases the risk of stroke by 3 to 4 times. Oral anticoagulation has been shown to mitigate stroke risk by two-thi...

Clinical Decision Support Tool for Improving the Adequacy of Anticoagulant Therapy in Non-valvular Atrial Fibrillation

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Monitoring of rate of occurrence of specific conditions to assess the stability or change in health levels of a population. It is also the study of disease rates in a specific cohort, geographic area, population subgroup, etc. to estimate trends in larger population. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.

Coumarin derivative that acts as a long acting oral anticoagulant.

An oral anticoagulant that interferes with the metabolism of vitamin K. It is also used in biochemical experiments as an inhibitor of reductases.

Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy. (Glaser, Neuro-Ophthalmology, 2nd ed, p135)
