This retrospective analysis investigated the impact of baseline clinical characteristics, including atrial fibrillation (AF), on hospital discharge status (to home or continuing care), mortality, length of hospital stay, and treatment costs in patients hospitalized for stroke. The analysis included adult patients hospitalized with a primary diagnosis of(More)
BACKGROUND Limited data are available about the real-world safety of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs). OBJECTIVES To compare the major bleeding risk among newly anticoagulated non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients initiating apixaban, warfarin, dabigatran or rivaroxaban in the United States. METHODS AND RESULTS A(More)
AIM While bleeding is a well-known complication of warfarin use and is thought to be a contributory cause of treatment discontinuation, studies quantifying this association are limited. The objective of this study was to quantify the association between bleeding events and subsequent warfarin discontinuation in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation(More)
The ARISTOTLE trial showed a risk reduction of stroke/systemic embol-ism (SE) and major bleeding in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients treated with apixaban compared to warfarin. This retrospective study used four large US claims databases (MarketScan, PharMet-rics, Optum, and Humana) of NVAF patients newly initiating apixaban or warfarin from(More)
