Kidney injury may be less among patients with chronic kidney disease and atrial fibrillation taking apixaban versus warfarin for anticoagulation, new research suggests.
Apixaban is a direct oral anticoagulant that relies less on kidney excretion.
The patient developed a generalized maculopapular rash approximately 3 hours after receiving warfarin.
Although more research is needed, data suggest that the cardioprotective effect of direct oral anticoagulants may extend to patients with advanced CKD.
Investigators found an incremental increase in risks from oral anticoagulants as kidney function decreased, highlighting the need for more research to better understand bleeding risk and net benefit of treatment in the CKD population.
Findings may help with decision-making in this high-risk patient population.
Moderate to severe hyperparathyroidism after kidney transplantation may have predisposed 2 cases to calciphylaxis, according to investigators.
Antiplatelet therapy may delay progression of COPD, decrease the risk for acute exacerbations, improve quality of life, and even reduce all-cause mortality.
