The primary objective was to evaluate the safety of dabigatran etexilate(BIBR 1048) administered orally at doses of 110 and 150 mg, twice daily, for 12 weeks in patients with non-valvular ...
This is a sigle-center, prospective study to evaluate the role of D-Dimer testing in patients with atrial fibrillation receiving Dabigatran or warfarin anticoagulation therapy.
The purposes of this study are: 1. To evaluate the long-term safety of dabigatran etexilate 2. To assess the effect of a knowledge translation intervention on patient outcomes
The primary objective of this study is to compare the LoS from treatment of oral anticoagulant initiation to hospital discharge of patients hospitalized and subsequently treated with dabig...
This is a comparative effectiveness and safety study of clinical events among patients taking either dabigatran or warfarin. There is no formal hypothesis to be tested, but rather to provi...
Dabigatran (150 mg twice daily) has been associated with lower rates of stroke than warfarin in trials of atrial fibrillation, but large-scale evaluations in clinical practice are limited.
We aim to determine the optimal dose of dabigatran in Korean patients with atrial fibrillation (AF).
The prevalence of diabetes is growing, and diabetes is an independent risk factor for both atrial fibrillation (AF) and stroke. However, the relative effectiveness and safety of different oral anti...
: Left ventricular (LV) thrombi are mostly formed in the aneurysmal or akinetic segment of the LV apex. Thromboembolism to the brain is usually fatal. There is not enough information available regardi...
Different outcomes among patients hospitalized for bleeding after starting anticoagulation could influence choice of anticoagulant. We compared length of hospitalization, proportion of Intensive Care ...
A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
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.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
