RESUMO

The thematic review presents modern solutions using oral anticoagulants with a focus on direct coagulation factor X inhibitors. It contains information about the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of apixaban and rivaroxaban against the background of different drug intake regimens - twice and once per day. There are shown studies of concentration dynamics and the corresponding functional response, measured using the integral method - the thrombin generation test, which is widely used in scientific research to describe hemostatic processes based on an objective quantitative assessment of the thrombin formation - a key coagulation cascade serine protease. The logical relationship between the pharmacodynamics of anticoagulant action and the clinical presentation of the effectiveness and safety of drugs is traced. The review provides links to actual literature and current clinical guidelines.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Leakage of bone cement from femoral medullary cavity is a rare complication after hip arthroplasty, and there is no report on the leaked bone cement entering into iliac vessels. PATIENT CONCERNS: An 89-year-old woman presented with a fracture in the right femoral neck. She had well-fixed right femoral head replacement after careful preoperative examinations, and no adverse reactions appeared. She was able to get off bed to walk at the 2nd day after surgery. DIAGNOSES: Postoperative radiograph showed leakage of bone cement into the joint through femoral medullary cavity entering into iliac vessels, but the patient complained no discomforts. She received a treatment with low-molecular weight heparin and rivaroxaban. OUTCOMES: The patient was able to walk with normal gait, without swelling in both lower extremities and discomfort in the hip. There was no other complication concerning intravascular foreign bodies. LESSONS: This case calls into the phenomenon of leakage of injected bone cement in femoral head replacement regardless of complete and nonfractured femur, which may be into the lower limb and pelvic veins, given that, dangerous consequences will not occur.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: We aimed to assess the safety of edoxaban in combination with P2Y12 inhibition in patients with atrial fibrillation who had percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS: ENTRUST-AF PCI was a randomised, multicentre, open-label, non-inferiority phase 3b trial with masked outcome evaluation, done at 186 sites in 18 countries. Patients had atrial fibrillation requiring oral anticoagulation, were aged at least 18 years, and had a successful PCI for stable coronary artery disease or acute coronary syndrome. Participants were randomly assigned (1:1) from 4 h to 5 days after PCI using concealed, stratified, and blocked web-based central randomisation to either edoxaban (60 mg once daily) plus a P2Y12 inhibitor for 12 months or a vitamin K antagonist (VKA) in combination with a P2Y12 inhibitor and aspirin (100 mg once daily, for 1-12 months). The edoxaban dose was reduced to 30 mg per day if one or more factors (creatinine clearance 15-50 mL/min, bodyweight ≤60 kg, or concomitant use of specified potent P-glycoprotein inhibitors) were present. The primary endpoint was a composite of major or clinically relevant non-major (CRNM) bleeding within 12 months. The primary analysis was done in the intention-to-treat population and safety was assessed in all patients who received at least one dose of their assigned study drug. This trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT02866175, is closed to new participants, and follow-up is completed. FINDINGS: From Feb 24, 2017, through May 7, 2018, 1506 patients were enrolled and randomly assigned to the edoxaban regimen (n=751) or VKA regimen (n=755). Median time from PCI to randomisation was 45·1 h (IQR 22·2-76·2). Major or CRNM bleeding events occurred in 128 (17%) of 751 patients (annualised event rate 20·7%) with the edoxaban regimen and 152 (20%) of 755 patients (annualised event rate 25·6%) patients with the VKA regimen; hazard ratio 0·83 (95% CI 0·65-1·05; p=0·0010 for non-inferiority, margin hazard ratio 1·20; p=0·1154 for superiority). INTERPRETATION: In patients with atrial fibrillation who had PCI, the edoxaban-based regimen was non-inferior for bleeding compared with the VKA-based regimen, without significant differences in ischaemic events.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: There are limited data from randomized trials evaluating the use of antithrombotic therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation and stable coronary artery disease. METHODS: In a multicenter, open-label trial conducted in Japan, we randomly assigned 2236 patients with atrial fibrillation who had undergone percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) more than 1 year earlier or who had angiographically confirmed coronary artery disease not requiring revascularization to receive monotherapy with rivaroxaban (a non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant) or combination therapy with rivaroxaban plus a single antiplatelet agent. The primary efficacy end point was a composite of stroke, systemic embolism, myocardial infarction, unstable angina requiring revascularization, or death from any cause; this end point was analyzed for noninferiority with a noninferiority margin of 1.46. The primary safety end point was major bleeding, according to the criteria of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis; this end point was analyzed for superiority. RESULTS: The trial was stopped early because of increased mortality in the combination-therapy group. Rivaroxaban monotherapy was noninferior to combination therapy for the primary efficacy end point, with event rates of 4.14% and 5.75% per patient-year, respectively (hazard ratio, 0.72; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.55 to 0.95; P<0.001 for noninferiority). Rivaroxaban monotherapy was superior to combination therapy for the primary safety end point, with event rates of 1.62% and 2.76% per patient-year, respectively (hazard ratio, 0.59; 95% CI, 0.39 to 0.89; P = 0.01 for superiority). CONCLUSIONS: As antithrombotic therapy, rivaroxaban monotherapy was noninferior to combination therapy for efficacy and superior for safety in patients with atrial fibrillation and stable coronary artery disease.

RESUMO

The management of cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT) is complex, and treatment strategies have been evolving over the past 15 years. It is well recognized that oral vitamin K antagonists are difficult to use in cancer patients, with higher rates of treatment failure and bleeding complications than in non-cancer patients. Low-molecular-weight-heparin (LMWH) became the widely accepted standard of care for treatment of cancer-associated thrombosis, following the CLOT study comparing dalteparin with warfarin in 2003. LMWH remains widely used for the treatment of CAT. However, in the past two years, several studies have served to validate direct oral anticoagulants as a safe and effective alternative to LMWH. Two randomized clinical trials comparing edoxaban and rivaroxaban with dalteparin, and several retrospective studies have shown the efficacy of edoxaban and rivaroxaban for the treatment of CAT. However, there is an evidence of increased bleeding with the DOACs, particularly gastrointestinal or urinary tract bleeding in patients with lesions within the gastrointestinal or urinary tracts. This chapter discusses the ongoing development of optimal treatment strategies for cancer-associated thrombosis.

RESUMO

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) include dabigatran etexilate, a direct thrombin inhibitor, and specific inhibitors of activated coagulation factor X (FXa; e.g. apixaban, betrixaban, edoxaban, rivaroxaban). DOACs are associated with lower rates of major and fatal bleeding events compared with warfarin. Clinicians may need to achieve rapid reversal of anticoagulation effects of the DOACs in an emergency setting. Idarucizumab and andexanet alfa, which reverse the anticoagulant effects of dabigatran and FXa inhibitors, respectively, are DOAC reversal agents available in the US. Other reversal agents (e.g. ciraparantag for heparins, DOACs) are in development. Alternative nonspecific agents (e.g. fresh frozen plasma, prothrombin complex concentrate) are available. Nonspecific prohemostatic agents can counteract the anticoagulant action of DOACs in emergency situations, when specific reversal agents are unavailable. However, specific reversal agents are efficacious and safe and should be preferred when available. In this review, we discuss practical issues in the initiation of DOAC therapy, situations where reversal may be needed, coagulation assays, reversal agents, and post-reversal complications in the context of published evidence and guidelines.

RESUMO

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a leading cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality; however, the extent to which genetic factors increase risk for PAD is largely unknown. Using electronic health record data, we performed a genome-wide association study in the Million Veteran Program testing ~32 million DNA sequence variants with PAD (31,307 cases and 211,753 controls) across veterans of European, African and Hispanic ancestry. The results were replicated in an independent sample of 5,117 PAD cases and 389,291 controls from the UK Biobank. We identified 19 PAD loci, 18 of which have not been previously reported. Eleven of the 19 loci were associated with disease in three vascular beds (coronary, cerebral, peripheral), including LDLR, LPL and LPA, suggesting that therapeutic modulation of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, the lipoprotein lipase pathway or circulating lipoprotein(a) may be efficacious for multiple atherosclerotic disease phenotypes. Conversely, four of the variants appeared to be specific for PAD, including F5 p.R506Q, highlighting the pathogenic role of thrombosis in the peripheral vascular bed and providing genetic support for Factor Xa inhibition as a therapeutic strategy for PAD. Our results highlight mechanistic similarities and differences among coronary, cerebral and peripheral atherosclerosis and provide therapeutic insights.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS) identifies patients with cryptogenic ischemic stroke presumed due to embolism from several unidentified sources. Among patients with recent ESUS, we sought to determine independent predictors of recurrent ischemic stroke during treatment with aspirin or rivaroxaban and to assess the relative effects of these treatments according to risk. METHODS: Exploratory analyses of 7213 participants in the NAVIGATE ESUS international trial who were randomized to aspirin 100 mg/day or rivaroxaban 15 mg/day and followed for a median of 11 months, during which time there were 309 first recurrent ischemic strokes (4.6% per year). Baseline features were correlated with recurrent stroke by multivariate analysis. RESULTS: The 7 independent predictors of recurrent stroke were stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) prior to the qualifying stroke (hazard ratio [HR] 2.03 95% confidence internal [CI] 1.58-2.60), current tobacco user (HR 1.62, 95% CI 1.24-2.12), age (HR 1.02 per year increase, 95%CI 1.01-1.03), diabetes (HR 1.28, 95% CI 1.01-1.64), multiple acute infarcts on neuroimaging (HR 1.49, 95% CI 1.09-2.02), aspirin use prior to qualifying stroke (HR 1.34, 95% CI 1.02-1.70), and time from qualifying stroke to randomization (HR .98, 95% CI .97-.99). The rate of recurrent stroke rate was 2.6% per year for participants without any of these risk factors, and increased by an average of 45% for each independent predictor (P < .001). There were no significant interactions between treatment effects and independent stroke predictors or stroke risk status. CONCLUSIONS: In this large cohort of ESUS patients, several features including prior stroke or TIA, advanced age, current tobacco user, multiple acute infarcts on neuroimaging, and diabetes independently identified those with an increased risk of ischemic stroke recurrence. The relative effects of rivaroxaban and aspirin were similar across the spectrum of independent stroke predictors and recurrent stroke risk status.

RESUMO

The review is devoted to the issue of optimal duration of anticoagulant therapy for venous thromboembolic complications (VTEC) using oral anticoagulants (OAC). These drugs are characterized by higher safety in comparison with vitamin K antagonists and make it possible to increase the duration of treatment for not only spontaneous thrombosis (with high risk of recurrence), but also thrombosis provoked by minor persistent and transient risk factors of VTEC. Efficacy and safety of prolonged treatment of VTEC using OAC was analyzed. Different classifications of primary thrombotic episode depending on risk of subsequent recurrence are presented. Moreover, scales for individual assessment of risk of recurrent thrombosis after anticoagulant therapy cancellation and risk of bleeding in case of continued treatment are given. Outcomes of long-term administration of rivaroxaban for VTEC are analyzed. It was concluded that OAC are safe for prolonged management of primary thrombotic episode. However, overall duration of treatment should be determined considering individual balance of benefits and risks.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Because studies of direct oral anticoagulants in patients with venous thromboembolism and non-valvular atrial fibrillation have had minimal representation of morbidly obese patients (ie, body-mass index [BMI] ≥40 kg/m2), their efficacy and safety in this population are unclear. We investigated whether apixaban and rivaroxaban are as effective and safe as warfarin in morbidly obese patients. METHODS: We did a single-centre, retrospective analysis of chart data for all adult patients aged at least 18 years at Montefiore Medical Center (Bronx, NY, USA) with a BMI of at least 40 kg/m2 who were prescribed apixaban, rivaroxaban, or warfarin for either venous thromboembolism or atrial fibrillation between March 1, 2013, and March 1, 2017. Patients who had both venous thromboembolism and atrial fibrillation were excluded, as were patients with indications other than atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism. Outcomes of recurrent venous thromboembolism, stroke, and bleeding were measured from the first prescription date to the earliest of a thrombotic event, medication discontinuation, death, or end of study on June 30, 2017. Analyses were stratified by anticoagulation indication and adjusted for comorbidities, CHA2DS2-VASc score, and age where appropriate. Outcome rates were compared using Pearson's χ2 or Fisher's exact test. Time-to-event analyses accounting for length of follow-up were used to compare risks of outcomes. FINDINGS: We obtained data for 795 patients: 150 prescribed apixaban, 326 rivaroxaban, and 319 warfarin. In 366 patients prescribed an anticoagulant for venous thromboembolism, the incidence of recurrent venous thromboembolism was similar between the apixaban, rivaroxaban, and warfarin cohorts (1/47 [2·1%, 95% CI 0·0-6·3], 3/152 [2·0%, 0·0-4·2], and 2/167 [1·2%, 0·0-2·9], respectively; p=0·74). Incidence of major bleeding in this patient group was also similar between the treatment cohorts (1/47 patients on apixaban [2·1%, 95% CI 0·0-6·3], 2/152 on rivaroxaban [1·3%, 0·0-3·1], and 4/167 on warfarin [2·4%, 0·1-4·7]; p=0·77). In 429 patients prescribed an anticoagulant for atrial fibrillation, incidence of stroke was similar between the treatment cohorts (1/103 patients on apixaban [1·0%, 95% CI 0·0-2·9], 4/174 on rivaroxaban [2·3%, 0·1-4·5], and 2/152 on warfarin [1·3%, 0·0-3·1], p=0·71). In this patient group, major bleeding occurred in 3/103 patients on apixaban (2·9%, 95% CI 0·0-6·2), 5/174 on rivaroxaban (2·9%, 0·4-5·4), and 12/152 on warfarin (7·9%, 3·6-12·2); p=0·063. Time-to-event analyses showed that risk of all outcomes in patients with venous thromboembolism, and stroke and composite bleeding in patients with atrial fibrillation, were similar between the anticoagulant cohorts. INTERPRETATION: Our retrospective study provides further evidence of similar efficacy and safety between the direct oral anticoagulants apixaban and rivaroxaban, and warfarin in morbidly obese patients with atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism. These data, if confirmed in prospective studies, might enable patients with a BMI of at least 40 kg/m2 to benefit from more convenient, and possibly safer, anticoagulants. FUNDING: None.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) is the standard treatment for venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with active cancer. However, use of factor Xa inhibitors, such as rivaroxaban, is increasing on the basis of limited clinical evidence. The present single-center study compared the incidence of bleeding and other treatment outcomes in gastrointestinal and pancreatobiliary cancer (GI tract cancer) patients administered rivaroxaban or LMWH for the treatment of VTE. METHODS: Retrospective data from 281 GI tract cancer patients who were treated for VTE with rivaroxaban (n = 78) or LMWH (n = 203) between 1 January 2012 and 31 December 2016, were analyzed. Primary end-point was the incidence of major and clinically relevant bleeding. Secondary outcomes included the incidence of recurrent VTE and mortality. RESULTS: Clinically relevant bleeding occurred in 19 patients (24.4%) in the rivaroxaban group and 31 (15.3%) in the LMWH group (P = 0.074). No inter-group difference was observed for rate of VTE recurrence (3.8% with rivaroxaban vs. 3.9% with LMWH; P > 0.999) or incidence of major bleeding (5.1% with rivaroxaban vs. 8.9% with LMWH; P = 0.296). Multivariate Cox proportional hazards analysis for age, cancer type, metastasis, history of chemotherapy or recent surgery, and Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status revealed a 1.904-fold higher risk of bleeding with rivaroxaban than LMWH (1.031-3.516; P = 0.040). No significant inter-group difference was found in terms of hazard ratio for all-cause mortality. CONCLUSION: Compared to LMWH, rivaroxaban was associated with a higher incidence of clinically relevant bleeding in GI tract cancer patients presenting with VTE.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Rivaroxaban has numerous advantages over traditional anticoagulation therapy. Fixed doses can be administered without requiring routine monitoring of coagulation, and anticoagulation efficacy is more predictable. Safety, including fewer drug interactions, and reduced bleeding, is also improved with rivaroxaban based on current recommendations. The goal of this report was to explore if low-dose rivaroxaban 10 mg once daily was effective in an elderly patient who developed minor bleeding when treated with rivaroxaban (10 mg twice daily) for a pulmonary embolism. PATIENT CONCERNS: We present an 88-year-old female with dyspnea and fatigue, which became increasingly worse over a month in the absence of medication. Her weight was 64 kg. Routine coagulation assays and renal function were normal at time of admission. DIAGNOSIS: Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism were confirmed by venous compression ultrasonography and computed tomography pulmonary angiography. INTERVENTIONS: Oral rivaroxaban 10 mg twice daily was administered, but the patient developed hemoptysis and gum bleeding 5 days later. The dose of rivaroxaban was reduced to 10 mg once daily, and bleeding gradually disappeared after 3 days. OUTCOME: At follow-up 90 days after treatment, the patient reported no discomfort. Venous compression ultrasonography and computed tomography pulmonary angiography showed normal results; therefore, treatment was terminated. LESSONS: Elderly patients exhibit variable tolerance of anticoagulants, warranting careful consideration of the risk of bleeding. Low-dose rivaroxaban was an effective treatment for pulmonary embolism in the elderly patient presented here.

RESUMO

Unfavorable fibrin clot features have been observed in patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE). We investigated whether rivaroxaban, a direct factor Xa inhibitor, and vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) can improve plasma clot viscoelastic properties. We studied four age- and sex-matched groups: 25 healthy controls, 15 VTE patients taking rivaroxaban 20 mg/day (blood concentration, 145 (67 - 217) ng/ml), 15 VTE patients taking VKA (INR: 2 - 3), and 15 VTE patients who stopped oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT). Using a hybrid rheometier the storage (G') and loss (G") moduli were evaluated in citrated plasma after addition of 5 pmol/l tissue factor. Fiber thickness within clots was assessed using scanning electron microscopy. Higher G' but not G" was observed for VTE patients taking rivaroxaban (+34%; post hoc, P = 0.029) compared to controls. As reflected by lower G' and G", patients taking rivaroxaban (-19% and -30%; post hoc, P = 0.0013 and P < 0.0001, respectively) formed less stiff and viscous clots compared to VTE patients after OAT withdrawal, also after adjustment for fibrinogen. VTE patients treated with rivaroxaban and VKA had similar clot viscoelastic properties (post hoc, P = 0.85 for G' and P = 0.29 for G"). G' and G" correlated with plasma rivaroxaban concentrations (r = -0.67, P = 0.005 and r = -0.59, P = 0.021, respectively), and the time from the last dose of rivaroxaban intake (r = 0.59, P = 0.02 and r = 0.58, P = 0.022, respectively). G' and G" showed no association with INR in patients on VKAs. G' or G" were not associated with fibrin diameter on scanning electron microscopy images in either group. Our preliminary study shows that both rivaroxaban and VKA improve clot viscoelastic properties in VTE patients, which might contribute to their antithrombotic effects. G' and G" may reflect specific clot physical features, beyond key plasma clot characteristics, which highlights benefits from comprehensive plasma clot analysis in patients with thrombotic diseases.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Previous clinical trials have addressed that rivaroxaban is effective for the treatment of patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). This study will systematically assess its efficacy and safety for PE. METHODS: We will carry out this study by searching the following electronic databases from inception to March 1, 2019 without language restrictions: Cochrane Library, EMBASE, PUBMED, Web of Science, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Allied and Complementary Medicine Database, Chinese Biomedical Literature Database, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure. In addition, we will also search clinical trial registries, dissertations, and conference abstracts to avoid any missing potential studies. All randomized controlled trials of rivaroxaban for patients with PE will be fully considered. Two researchers will independently perform literature selection, data collection, and methodological quality assessment. If it is appropriate, outcome data will be pooled by using a fixed-effect model or random-effect model, and meta-analysis will be considered for operation. RESULTS: All efficacy and safety of rivaroxaban for PE will be assessed through all primary and secondary outcomes. The primary outcomes are all-cause mortality and major bleeding. The secondary outcomes are recurrent venous thromboembolism, duration of hospital stay, quality of life, patient satisfaction, and adverse events. CONCLUSION: The findings of this study will summarize updated evidence on the efficacy and safety of rivaroxaban for patients with PE. ETHICS AND DISSEMINATION: It is not necessary to inquire ethical approval for this study, because it will not analyze any individual patient data. The results of this study will be published through peer-reviewed journals. SYSTEMATIC REVIEW REGISTRATION: PROSPERO CRD42019126095.

RESUMO

DESCRIPTION: This expert review was commissioned and approved by the AGA Institute Clinical Practice Updates Committee and the AGA Governing Board to provide timely guidance on a topic of high clinical importance to the AGA membership. The intent is to evaluate the current data on mechanism of altered coagulation in patients with cirrhosis, provide guidance on the use of currently available testing of the coagulation cascade, and help practitioners use anticoagulation and pro-coagulants appropriately in patients with cirrhosis. METHODS: This review is framed around the best practice points, which were derived from the most impactful publications in the area of coagulation in cirrhosis and agreed to by all authors. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 1: Global tests of clot formation, such as rotational thromboelastometry, thromboelastography, sonorheometry, and thrombin generation, may eventually have a role in the evaluation of clotting in patients with cirrhosis, but currently lack validated target levels. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 2: In general, clinicians should not routinely correct thrombocytopenia and coagulopathy before low-risk therapeutic paracentesis, thoracentesis, and routine upper endoscopy for variceal ligation in patients with hepatic synthetic dysfunction-induced coagulation abnormalities. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 3: Blood products should be used sparingly because they increase portal pressure and carry a risk of transfusion-associated circulatory overload, transfusion-related acute lung injury, infection transmission, alloimmunization, and/or transfusion reactions. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 4: The following transfusion thresholds for management of active bleeding or high-risk procedures may optimize clot formation in advanced liver disease: hematocrit ≥25%, platelet count >50,000, and fibrinogen >120 mg/dL. Commonly utilized thresholds for international normalized ratio correction are not supported by evidence. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 5: Thrombopoietin agonists are a good alternative to platelet transfusion, but require time (about 10 days) to elevate platelet levels. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 6: The large volume of fresh frozen plasma required to reach an arbitrary international normalized ratio target, limitations of the usual target, minimal effect on thrombin generation, and adverse effects on portal pressure limit the utility of this agent significantly. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 7: The 4-factor prothrombin complex concentrate contains both pro- and anticoagulant factors that offer an attractive low-volume therapeutic to rebalance a disturbed hemostatic system. However, dosage is, in part, based on international normalized ratio, which is problematic in cirrhosis, and published experience in liver disease is limited. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 8: Anti-fibrinolytic therapy may be considered in patients with persistent bleeding from mucosal oozing or puncture wound bleeding consistent with impaired clot integrity. Both ε-aminocaproic acid and tranexamic acid inhibit clot dissolution. Neither is believed to generate a hypercoagulable state, although both may exacerbate pre-existing thrombi. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 9: Desmopressin releases von Willebrand factor as its primary hemostatic mechanism. As this factor is usually elevated in cirrhosis, the agent lacks a sound evidence-based foundation, but may be useful in patients with concomitant renal failure. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 10: Systemic heparin infusion is recommended for symptomatic deep vein thrombosis and portal and mesenteric vein thrombosis, but there are unresolved issues regarding monitoring with both the anti-Xa assay and the partial thromboplastin time due to cirrhosis-related antithrombin deficiency (heparin cofactor). BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 11: Treatment of incidental portal and mesenteric vein thrombosis depends on estimated impact on transplantation surgical complexity vs risks of bleeding and falls. Therapy with low-molecular-weight heparin, vitamin K antagonists, and direct-acting anticoagulants improve portal vein repermeation vs observation alone. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE 12: Direct-acting anticoagulants, such as the factor Xa and thrombin inhibitors, are relatively safe and effective in stable cirrhotic patients, but are in need of further study in patients with more advanced liver disease.

RESUMO

Pulmonary arteriovenous fistula (PAVF), a vessel malformation connecting the pulmonary circulation to the systemic circulation while bypassing the pulmonary capillaries, can cause paradoxical cerebral infarction. It is often associated with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), a genetic disease characterized by multiple dermal, mucosal, and visceral telangiectasia causing recurrent bleeding. Paradoxical cerebral embolism caused by PAVF without HHT is rare. Here, we report a patient with isolated PAVF who experienced an ischemic stroke caused by a paradoxical embolism from deep venous thrombosis; the patient was successfully treated with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator. She presented with a decrease in arterial oxygen saturation to 91%, and lung disease was suspected. A PAVF was subsequently found in the right S6 region using contrast computed tomography. Interventional radiologists successfully occluded the shunt using 6 microcoils. PAVF should be considered when determining the pathogenesis of cerebral ischemia in patients with hypoxia, which can be the only symptom of PAVF.

RESUMO

Factor Xa (FXa) is the key serine protease of the coagulation cascade as it is the point of convergence of the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways, leading to the formation of thrombin. Factor Xa is an established target of anticoagulation therapy, due to its central role in coagulation. Over the past years, several direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) targeting FXa have been developed. Rivaroxaban, apixaban, and edoxaban are used in clinical practice for prevention and treatment of thrombotic diseases. Increasing evidence suggests that FXa exerts nonhemostatic cellular effects that are mediated mainly through protease-activated receptors-1 and -2 and are involved in pathophysiological conditions, such as atherosclerosis, inflammation, and fibrosis. Direct inhibition of FXa by DOACs could be beneficial in these conditions. This is a narrative review that focuses on the cellular effects of FXa in various cell types and conditions, as well as on the possible pleiotropic effects of FXa-targeting DOACs.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Appropriate antithrombotic regimens for patients with atrial fibrillation who have an acute coronary syndrome or have undergone percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are unclear. METHODS: In an international trial with a two-by-two factorial design, we randomly assigned patients with atrial fibrillation who had an acute coronary syndrome or had undergone PCI and were planning to take a P2Y12 inhibitor to receive apixaban or a vitamin K antagonist and to receive aspirin or matching placebo for 6 months. The primary outcome was major or clinically relevant nonmajor bleeding. Secondary outcomes included death or hospitalization and a composite of ischemic events. RESULTS: Enrollment included 4614 patients from 33 countries. There were no significant interactions between the two randomization factors on the primary or secondary outcomes. Major or clinically relevant nonmajor bleeding was noted in 10.5% of the patients receiving apixaban, as compared with 14.7% of those receiving a vitamin K antagonist (hazard ratio, 0.69; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.58 to 0.81; P<0.001 for both noninferiority and superiority), and in 16.1% of the patients receiving aspirin, as compared with 9.0% of those receiving placebo (hazard ratio, 1.89; 95% CI, 1.59 to 2.24; P<0.001). Patients in the apixaban group had a lower incidence of death or hospitalization than those in the vitamin K antagonist group (23.5% vs. 27.4%; hazard ratio, 0.83; 95% CI, 0.74 to 0.93; P = 0.002) and a similar incidence of ischemic events. Patients in the aspirin group had an incidence of death or hospitalization and of ischemic events that was similar to that in the placebo group. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with atrial fibrillation and a recent acute coronary syndrome or PCI treated with a P2Y12 inhibitor, an antithrombotic regimen that included apixaban, without aspirin, resulted in less bleeding and fewer hospitalizations without significant differences in the incidence of ischemic events than regimens that included a vitamin K antagonist, aspirin, or both.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Cancer patients with cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT) are at an elevated risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) and of major bleeding while receiving treatment with anticoagulation. Recently, Xa inhibitors have been assessed in cancer patients for the treatment of CAT, providing clinicians and patients with more treatment options. AREAS COVERED: In this narrative review, the authors evaluate the evidence regarding the efficacy and safety of edoxaban, rivaroxaban, and apixaban in the treatment of CAT. EXPERT OPINION: Xa inhibitors are an effective, safe, and convenient option for the treatment of CAT. Overall, they may be associated with a lower risk of recurrent VTE in cancer patients. Certain subgroups of cancer patients may be at increased risk of major bleeding while on treatment with Xa inhibitors, when compared to low-molecular-weight-heparin (LMWH). The current published data suggests an increase in gastrointestinal (GI) major bleeding in patients with GI malignancies. Other patient, treatment, and cancer characteristics may also be associated with a higher risk of major bleeding. Therefore, when assessing the appropriateness of Xa inhibitors for the treatment of CAT, the clinician must take into consideration the known interactions of these drugs, the individualized bleeding risk, and the patient's preferences, in order to make the best possible anticoagulation therapy recommendation.
