What is the APTT test? The APTT (activated partial thromboplastin time) is a measure of one part of the clotting system known as the intrinsic pathway. This pathway involves a number of coagulation factors, which are proteins involved in the normal clotting process. The APTT is used to measure the effects of treatment with intravenous (IV) heparin […]

Rivaroxaban use for inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis after successful catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) is rarely reported. This study aimed at investigating the safety and efficacy of rivaroxaban for IVC thrombosis after CDT. The clinical data on 38 consecutive patients with IVC thrombosis (68% male; mean age, 51.5 ± 16.5), who received rivaroxaban after CDT between […]

American Academy of Pediatrics and other medical experts exclusively recommend to breastfeed the baby for first 6 months.

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Patients with cancer are more likely to develop nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). Currently there are no definitive clinical trials or treatment guidelines for NVAF patients with concurrent cancer. OBJECTIVES: This subgroup analysis of the ARISTOPHANES study compared […]

Study design: A prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Objectives: There are few studies examining the balance between preventing venous thrombus embolism (VTE) and reducing blood loss in posterior/transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF/TLIF) surgeries. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combine application of TXA and rivaroxaban in patients undergoing PLIF/TLIF and […]

Xarelto (rivaroxaban) The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an expanded peripheral arterial disease (PAD) indication for the Xarelto (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5mg twice daily plus aspirin 100mg once daily) to include patients following recent lower-extremity revascularisation (LER) due to symptomatic PAD. The […]

Rivaroxaban is the first and only therapy indicated for both coronary artery disease and peripheral artery disease. Officials with the FDA have approved an expanded indication for rivaroxaban (Xarelto; Janssen) plus aspirin for the treatment of patients following lower-extremity revascularization (LER) due to symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD). According to a press release, rivaroxaban is […]

The effect of renal impairment (RI) on risk of bleeding and recurrent thrombosis in cancer patients treated with direct oral anticoagulants for venous thromboembolism (VTE) is undefined. We run a prespecified analysis of the randomized Caravaggio study to evaluate the role of RI as risk factor for bleeding or recurrence in patients treated with dalteparin […]

ABSTRACT OBJECTIVE: To compare the bleeding risk in patients with gastrointestinal (GI) cancer with that in patients with non-GI cancer treated with anticoagulation for acute cancer-associated venous thromboembolism (Ca-VTE). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Consecutive patients with Ca-VTE seen […]

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Several studies have demonstrated that low-molecular weight heparin (LMWH) is superior to unfractionated heparin (UFH) in trauma patients. The superiority of either one has not been established for the elderly. In this study, we compared […]

To identify the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk factors, postoperative VTE, and to assess the morbidity of perioperative pharmacologic VTE prophylaxis in men undergoing inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) surgery.We retrospectively reviewed 215 patients undergoing IPP surgery between July 2017 and June 2019. Univariate and multivariate statistical analyses were performed to assess pre-operative Caprini risk […]

MANHASSET, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Throughout the pandemic, the medical community witnessed an increased risk for major blood clotting and death in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
