While warfarin is the most commonly prescribed medication to prevent thromboembolic disorders, the risk of adverse drug reactions (ADR) poses a serious concern. This prospective study evaluated how primary care providers (PCP) and cardiologists at our Institution managed patients treated with warfarin with the goal of decreasing the number of warfarin ADRs. A multidisciplinary anticoagulation task force was established at our Institution in 2014 to standardize warfarin monitoring and management....

Warfarin is well studied in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). It has low complication rates for patients achieving individual Time in Therapeutic Range (iTTR)>70%. The risk sc ...

Background and objectives: Long-term therapy with oral anticoagulants is recommended for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). This study evaluated the quality of anticoagulation therapy among warfarin-treated AF patients in selected primary health care centres in Lithuania. Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective study conducted in nine primary health care centres in Lithuania. Existing medical records of randomly selected adult patients with AF who were treated w...

Warfarin treatment requires regular and proper monitoring to avoid overanticoagulation and at the same time to prevent thromboembolic complications. This study assessed the quality of warfarin anticoagulation at Princess Marina Hospital in Botswana. This cross-sectional study consecutively enrolled patients who were on warfarin for at least 3 months in the outpatient medical clinic. The level of anticoagulation was determined by the time in therapeutic range (TTR) using the Rosendaal method that...

There is conflicting evidence of benefit versus harm for warfarin anticoagulation in hemodialysis patients with atrial fibrillation. This equipoise may be explained by suboptimal Time in Therapeutic Range (TTR), which correlates well with thromboembolic and bleeding complications. This study aimed to compare nephrologist-led management of warfarin therapy versus that led by specialized anticoagulation clinic. In a retrospective cohort of chronic hemodialysis patients from two institutions (Insti...

Objectives Whether warfarin-treated patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) who exhibit good control will experience deterioration in control over time is uncertain. We designed this study to examine the time in therapeutic range (TTR) in a population-based cohort of patients with NVAF recently initiated on warfarin. Design Retrospective cohort study using routinely collected health data from 2008 to 2015. Setting The Canadian province of Alberta. Participants All adults with NVAF ...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with adverse outcomes in terms of survival and morbidity. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) and AF share several common risk factors and often coexist. Whether AF has a prognostic role in patients with PAD has not been extensively studied.AF is associated with major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and mortality in symptomatic PAD patients.Using MEDLINE and Scopus, we searched for studies published before December 2016 that evaluated cardiovascular outcomes base...

Background \Anticoagulation is used for stroke prophylaxis in non-valvular atrial fibrillation, amongst other by use of the vitamin K antagonist, warfarin. Quality in warfarin therapy is often summarized by the time patients spend within the therapeutic range (percent time in therapeutic range, TTR). The correlation between TTR and the occurrence of complications during warfarin therapy has been established, but the influence of patient characteristics in that respect remains undetermined. The o...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The quality of anticoagulation is critical for ensuring the benefit of warfarin, but this has been less well studied in Korean ischemic stroke patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS: This study retrospectively analyzed the data of patients who had an AF-related ischemic stroke and were treated with long-term warfarin therapy in 16 Korean centers. The quality of warfarin therapy was primarily assessed by the time in therapeutic range [TTR; international normalized...
