The researchers found that the risk of developing an intraocular hemorrhage was reduced with dabigatran or rivaroxaban at 365 days (hazard ratio, 0.75; 95% confidence interval, 0.58 to 0.97; P=0.03) but not at 90 days (hazard ratio, 0.73; 95% confidence interval, 0.22 to 2.63; P=0.13).
For this group the risk of stroke was reduced by 42% (HR 0.58; 95% CI, 0.44-0.76; P<0.001), CV death by 22% (HR 0.78; 95% CI, 0.64-0.96; P=0.02) and heart attack by 14% (HR 0.86; 95% CI, 0.70-1.05; P=0.14).
The greatest risk reduction of stroke or systemic embolism was seen with dabigatran 150mg twice daily (odds ratio [OR] 0.65, 95% CI: 0.52-0.81), followed by apixaban 5mg twice daily (OR 0.79, 95% CI: 0.66-0.94).
Compared with warfarin, dabigatran and rivaroxaban linked to lower risk of adverse renal outcomes
End-stage renal disease patients on dialysis with atrial fibrillation are at high risk for thrombotic complications.
While death from pulmonary embolism (PE) while watching TV may be a rare event, previous studies have demonstrated a positive association between time watching TV and the risk of death from PE (double the risk for >5hrs per day).
And antithrobotic medications linked to higher rate of hematuria-related events in older adults
The main outcomes and measures were intraocular bleeding events and associated risk ratio for NOACs, compared with warfarin.
