The main objective of the study is to assess preferences of Non Valvular Atrial Fibrillation (NVAF) patients towards different options of an anticoagulation treatment.
Patient preferences for anticoagulant treatment attributes (convenience attributes only), based on a Discrete Choice Experiment(DCE) interview will be elicited and the impact of switching from Vitamin K Antagonist(VKA) to Xarelto® on Atrial Fibrilation(AF) patient treatment satisfaction will be documented, measured by score differences of the Anti-Clot Treatment Scale (ACTS) score in patients switching from VKA to Rivaroxaban.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Rivaroxaban (Xarelto, BAY 59-7939)

This is an exploratory investigation of safety, pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of BAY59-7939 with multiple oral doses of 10 mg, 15 mg and 20 mg once daily (od) in Ja...
This study was a randomized, parallel group, open label trial using warfarin as comparator. Pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) were investigated only in BAY59-7939 groups (ori...
The objectives of this study are to establish the bioequivalence between rivaroxaban tablet 15 mg and rivaroxaban granule formulation 15 mg, and to assess the safety and tolerability of ri...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of BAY59-7939 with the safety and efficacy of the licensed drug enoxaparin and a licensed oral vitamin K-antagonist and to f...
Patients undergoing surgery, especially hip and knee surgery, are at high risk for VTE. The administration of drugs for thromboprophylaxis, such as heparins, significantly lowers that risk...
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...
Real-world data are a well-recognized component within the drug lifecycle, and such data are generated from a range of sources and study designs, including claims databases, electronic health records,...
In atrial fibrillation (AF)-related acute ischemic stroke, the optimal oral anticoagulation strategy remains unclear.
Sex-specific effectiveness of rivaroxaban (RIVA), dabigatran (DABI), and warfarin in reducing myocardial infarction (MI), heart failure (HF), and all-cause mortality among patients with atrial fibrill...
Dabigatran and rivaroxaban have been approved by the US FDA to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients. Newly published real-world evidence ...
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).
A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.
A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)
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.
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...
