Summary of "Direct comparisons of effectiveness and safety of treatment with Apixaban, Dabigatran and rivaroxaban in atrial fibrillation."

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have been proven non-inferior or superior to warfarin in preventing stroke and systemic embolism, with a lower risk of major hemorrhage, in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). We sought to investigate whether effectiveness and safety differs among apixaban, rivaroxaban and dabigatran.

Effectiveness and Safety of Apixaban Compared With Rivaroxaban for Patients With Atrial Fibrillation in Routine Practice: A Cohort Study.

Apixaban and rivaroxaban are the most commonly prescribed direct oral anticoagulants for adults with atrial fibrillation, but head-to-head data comparing their safety and effectiveness are lacking.

Rivaroxaban and dabigatran for suppression of mechanical heart valve-induced thrombin generation.

Patients with mechanical heart valves (MHVs) require warfarin to prevent thromboembolism. Dabigatran was less effective than warfarin in patients with MHVs, which prompted a black box warning against ...
