Anticoagulation with or without Clopidogrel after Transcatheter Aortic-Valve Implantation. The roles of anticoagulation alone or with an antiplatelet agent after transcatheter aortic-valve implantation (TAVI) have not been well studied.We performed a randomized trial of clopidogrel in patients undergoing TAVI who were receiving oral anticoagulation for appropriate indications. Patients were assigned before TAVI in a 1:1 ratio not to receive clopidogrel or to receive clopidogrel for 3 months (...) from cardiovascular causes, ischemic stroke, or myocardial infarction (secondary composite 2), both tested for noninferiority (noninferiority margin, 7.5 percentage points) and superiority.Bleeding occurred in 34 of the 157 patients (21.7%) receiving oral anticoagulation alone and in 54 of the 156 (34.6%) receiving oral anticoagulation plus clopidogrel (risk ratio, 0.63; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.43 to 0.90; P = 0.01); most bleeding events were at the TAVI access site.

10. Equivalent inpatient mortality among direct-acting oral anticoagulant and warfarin users presenting with major hemorrhage Full Text available with Trip Pro

Equivalent inpatient mortality among direct-acting oral anticoagulant and warfarin users presenting with major hemorrhage Extrapolation of clinical trial results comparing warfarin and direct-acting oral anticoagulant (DOAC) users experiencing major hemorrhage to clinical care is challenging due to differences seen among non-randomized oral anticoagulant users, bleed location, and etiology. We hypothesized that inpatient all-cause-mortality among patients presenting with major hemorrhage (...) differed based on the home-administered anticoagulant medication class, DOAC versus warfarin.More than 1.5 million hospitalizations were screened and 3731 patients with major hemorrhage were identified in the REDS-III Recipient Database. Propensity score matching and stratification were used to account for potentially confounding factors.Inpatient all-cause-mortality was lower for DOAC (HR = 0.60, 95%CI 0.45-0.80, p = 0.0005) before accounting for confounding and competing events.

Oral Anticoagulation for Patients With Atrial Fibrillation on Long-Term Hemodialysis Patients on long-term dialysis are at increased risk of bleeding. Although oral anticoagulants (OACs) are recommended for atrial fibrillation (AF) to reduce the risk of stroke, randomized trials have excluded these populations. As such, the net clinical benefit of OACs among patients on dialysis is unknown.This study aimed to investigate the efficacy and safety of OACs in patients with AF on long-term (...) for dabigatran and rivaroxaban were limited to major bleeding events.

Association of Anticoagulant Therapy With Risk of Fracture Among Patients With Atrial Fibrillation Warfarin is prescribed to patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) for the prevention of cardioembolic complications.

Osteoporotic Fractures in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation Treated With Conventional Versus Direct Anticoagulants Elderly patients in long-term treatment with vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) are at high risk of osteoporotic fractures compared with the background population. It has been speculated that the choice of oral anticoagulant (OAC) may affect the risk of osteoporotic fractures.The risk of osteoporotic fractures was evaluated among patients with atrial fibrillation treated with VKA (...) or direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs).Patients were identified using the Danish national registries. Patients were included only if they had no prior use of osteoporosis medication and they had undergone 180 days of OAC treatment. Outcomes were hip fracture, major osteoporotic fracture, any fracture, initiation of osteoporosis medication, and a combined endpoint.Overall, 37,350 patients were included. The standardized absolute 2-year risk of any fracture was low among DOAC-treated patients (3.1%; 95% CI
