The efficacy and safety of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) compared with warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and peripheral artery disease (PAD) remain largely unknown. Therefore, we conducted a meta-analysis to explore the effects of NOACs versus warfarin in this population.

To investigate the effectiveness, safety, and outcomes of lower limb events for non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) versus warfarin among atrial fibrillation (AF) patients with concom...
Stroke prevention in elderly patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) can be challenging, requiring a balance between thromboembolism prevention and serious bleeding. Comparisons of non-vitamin K antago...
To evaluate the fracture risk among patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) treated with non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) or warfarin.
Non-vitamin K-dependent oral anticoagulants (NOAC) have changed the management of patients with oral anticoagulation. This raises the question of which patients should preferably be anticoagulated wit...

To determine discontinuation rates, patterns of use and predictors of discontinuation of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) among patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF...
An anticoagulation therapy is a critical treatment to prevent thromboembolism in non-valvular AF (NVAF) patients. Warfarin, a vitamin K antagonist, is the first oral anticoagulant approved...
The purpose of this study is to assess safety and effectiveness of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) and warfarin for stroke prevention in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (...
This is an observational, multicenter and cross-sectional study in Non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) elderly patients currently on Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant (NOAC) ...
Using mandatory nationwide registries and possibly hospital electronic medical records in Norway, the researchers want to understand how well a group of drugs called "non-vitamin K antagon...
Oral anticoagulants that are widely used for the treatment of thrombo-embolic disease exert their effect by blocking the recycling of vitamin K. Vitamin K acts as a co-factor in the posttr...
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.
Substances found in many plants, containing the 4-hydroxycoumarin radical. They interfere with vitamin K and the blood clotting mechanism, are tightly protein-bound, inhibit mitochondrial and microsomal enzymes, and are used as oral anticoagulants.
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN A in the diet, characterized by NIGHT BLINDNESS and other ocular manifestations such as dryness of the conjunctiva and later of the cornea (XEROPHTHALMIA). Vitamin A deficiency is a very common problem worldwide, particularly in developing countries as a consequence of famine or shortages of vitamin A-rich foods. In the United States it is found among the urban poor, the elderly, alcoholics, and patients with malabsorption. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1179)
A vitamin antagonist which has teratogenic effects.
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...
