Conclusions When femoral access is not feasible, DA access allows effective delivery of the valve but incurs an increased risk of death and adverse events, potentially the result of procedural differences.
CONCLUSIONS: LAAC followed by DAPT seems to be a safe and efficient alternative for stroke prevention in patients with NVAF and contraindications to anticoagulation therapy. This strategy may provide a significant reduction of events such as stroke and bleeding versus the score-predicted rate. PMID: 29350390 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Advantages of bivalirudin are undoubtedly related to GPI use in the heparin arms. Bivalirudin-based regimens are more beneficial when compared with heparin and planned GPI use in terms of NACE and major bleedings. It was not observed when compared to heparin and provisional GPI use. Regardless of adjunctive GPI use, stent thrombosis episodes were significantly more common in bivalirudin treated subjects. Therefore the safety and economic issues may urge revision of this aspect of current clinical practice and guidelines. PMID: 29350380 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Adherence to NOACs for both 6 months and continued prolong use (up to 12-months) was associated with a reduction in IS and DVTPE risk, but did not substantially increase risk of MB. Further studies on newer, individual NOACs and older population are warranted. PMID: 29334815 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Chronic exposure to low to medium doses of OGC was associated with significantly increased risk of potential OGC-related AE in patients with RA, and greater cumulative OGC dose was associated with substantially higher AE-related healthcare expenditures among patients with AE.

Purpose of review Reviewing existing evidence regarding well tolerated and effective antiplatelet treatment in patients with acute or chronic, noncardioembolic ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA). Recent findings For patients with high-risk stroke or TIA, for instance, minor stroke or high-risk TIA, or stroke of atherosclerotic origin with evidence suggesting risk of artery-to-artery embolism or with high-grade, symptomatic arterial stenosis, early initiated, short-term dual antiplatelet (e.g. aspirin and clopidogrel) is effective in reducing the risk of recurrent stroke and other vascular events which...
Conclusions A shared decision-making interaction, facilitated by an AFSDM can significantly improve multiple measures of decision-making quality, leading to improved medication adherence and patient satisfaction.
The objective was to assess whether rivaroxaban is superior to acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) in reducing the risk of clinically overt stroke, systemic embolism, or covert stroke among patients without apparent recurrent atrial arrhythmias for at least 1 year after their most recent AF ablation procedure. Methods/design A prospective, multicenter, open-label, randomized trial with blinded assessment of outcomes is under way (NCT02168829). Atrial fibrillation patients with at least 1 stroke risk factor (as defined by the CHA2DS2-VASc score) and without known atrial arrhythmia recurrences for at least 12 months after ablation ar...
Abstract With over 1.5 billion people, East Asians are the most populous race in the world. Health status in this population is an important global issue. In the contemporary trials of antithrombotic treatment, East Asian patients have a lower risk for atherothrombotic diseases (especially, coronary artery disease [CAD]) and a higher risk for bleeding (especially, gastrointestinal bleeding and hemorrhagic stroke). Despite these observations, antithrombotic treatment strategies in East Asian patients are mainly based on the American or European guidelines that are derived from randomized, controlled trials includin...
CONCLUSION: More potent antithrombotic regimens increase bleeding and should only be considered on an individual basis, after careful risk stratification. Accurate risk stratification of ACS patients, for both ischaemic and bleeding risk, is essential to allow individualised treatment. PMID: 29345587 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
