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

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...
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...
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 ...
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...
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 ...
The Purpose of this open-label randomized controlled multicenter trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mono-drug therapy with oral anticoagulant compared to combination therapy w...
Approximately 5 to 8% of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions requires chronic anticoagulant therapy due to atrial fibrillation or other clinical entities. There are man...
This study will characterize patients with ischemic stroke, a condition which occurs when a vessel supplying blood to the brain is obstructed, and a subpopulation of patients with irregula...
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...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and increases the risk of ischemic stroke 4-5-fold. The prevention of complications is based on oral or antiplatelet anticoag...
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.

Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
