Appropriate patient selection and pharmacist-led monitoring were linked to greater adherence to dabigatran among patients with atrial fibrillation at Veterans Health Administration sites, according to a recent study published in JAMA.
The data represents ~3,000 patients who had received the study drug in Phase 3 of GLORIA-AF with up to 2 years follow-up.
At ACC.13, the American College of Cardiology’s 62nd Annual Scientific Session, Anil Rajendra, MD, from the Medical University of South Carolina, in Charleston, SC, presented data showing similar bleeding and thrombotic complication rates at the time of atrial fibrillation ablation (AFA) in patients anticoagulated with dabigatran and rivaroxaban. Dr. Rajendra and colleagues determined that rivaroxaban has an acceptable safety profile for AFA.
The study analyzed data from NVAF patients newly initiating treatment with dabigatran, rivaroxaban or apixaban.
At ACC.13, the American College of Cardiology’s 62nd Annual Scientific Session, leading cardiologists presented that the use of dabigatran following ablation for atrial fibrillation resulted in no major post-procedural complications.

Rivaroxaban, a non-vitamin K antagonist (VKA) oral anticoagulant, was found to have better persistence and lower discontinuation rates than, the VKA warfarin and the non-VKA, dabigatran.
Concomitant use of dabigatran with verapamil or diltiazem was found to be associated with an increased risk of bleeding in patients with normal kidney function, according to the findings of a recently published retrospective cohort study.
