1. In this observational study, patients who received one of three direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) were significantly less likely to have an osteoporotic hip or vertebral fracture compared to those who received warfarin. 2. No difference in fracture risk was detected between individual DOACs. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Osteoporotic...
1. After successful transcatheter aortic valve replacement, compared to an anti-platelet based strategy, patients that received an anti-coagulation strategy including rivaroxaban at a dose of 10 mg daily had a higher risk of death, thromboembolic complications, and bleeding. Evidence Rating: 1 (Excellent) Transcatheter aortic-valve replacement (TAVR) is a treatment option for patients...

1. In this randomized study comparing the efficacy of rivaroxaban with warfarin, dose-adjusted rivaroxaban treatment resulted in near doubling of risk for recurrent thrombosis. 2. The two treatment groups experienced similar bleeding outcomes, but patients in the rivaroxaban group had a higher stroke incidence rate. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Antiphospholipid...

1. The Perioperative Anticoagulation Use for Surgery Evaluation (PAUSE) cohort study evaluated the safety of standardized perioperative interruption of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) for patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing operative interventions. The rates of both major bleeding and arterial thrombosis were low during the study period. 2. Most patients had...
Rivaroxaban is a selective direct factor Xa inhibitor that has been associated with improved outcomes in stable patients with chronic atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and acute coronary syndrome. Nevertheless, its role in the treatment of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) in addition to heart failure remains unclear. In the...
Association Between Longitudinal Plasma Neurofilament Light and Neurodegeneration in Patients With Alzheimer Disease Alzheimer disease (AD) is characterized by the accumulation of amyloid b (Ab) and tau aggregates in the brain. The progression of AD can be monitored through imaging techniques or through the use of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers....
1. In this post-hoc analysis of data from the NAVIGATE-ESUS trial, which evaluated strategies to prevent recurrent stroke in patient of embolic stroke of undetermined source, use of rivaroxaban was linked with a lower risk of recurrent stroke compared to aspirin in patients with moderate to severe left atrial...
