AHA 2017 Scientific Sessions
End-stage renal disease patients on dialysis with atrial fibrillation are at high risk for thrombotic complications.
The primary safety endpoint was defined as time to major bleeding events and clinically relevant non-major bleeding events when compared to triple therapy with warfarin.
Study patients were randomized to Pradaxa 150mg twice daily or warfarin (target INR 2-3) and remained on this treatment for the trial duration.
Jan Steffel, from the TIMI Study Group, Boston, MA, and colleagues presented on the safety of edoxaban in the context of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation.
Older patients, females, and those with comorbidities were more likely to be on multiple medications.
