BACKGROUND Near-patient testing has made self-monitoring of anticoagulation with warfarin feasible, and several trials have suggested that such monitoring might be equal to or better than standard monitoring. We did a systematic review and meta-analysis of all randomised controlled trials that assessed the effects of self-monitoring or self-management (self-testing and self-dosage) of anticoagulation compared with standard monitoring. METHODS We searched the Cochrane Register of Controlled… Expand

Interventional Clinical Trial
This clinical trial is about a new technology, named HEMOPTIC. It enables to mesure time of blood coagulation for monitoring of patients under Vitamin K antagonist (VKA). This… Expand

Self-monitoring of oral anticoagulation: systematic review and meta-analysis of individual patient data
TLDR
The analysis showed that self-monitoring and self-management of oral coagulation is a safe option for suitable patients of all ages and patients should also be offered the option to self-manage their disease with suitable health-care support as back-up. Expand
Self-monitoring and self-management of oral anticoagulation.
TLDR
The quality of evidence was generally low to moderate, and the effects on thrombotic events, major haemorrhages, and all-cause mortality of self-monitoring or self-management of oral anticoagulant therapy compared to standard monitoring was evaluated. Expand
Self-monitoring and self-management of oral anticoagulation.
TLDR
The effects on thrombotic events, major haemorrhages, and all-cause mortality of self-monitoring or self-management of oral anticoagulant therapy compared to standard monitoring were evaluated and the quality of evidence was generally low to moderate. Expand
Meta-analysis: Effect of Patient Self-testing and Self-management of Long-Term Anticoagulation on Major Clinical Outcomes
TLDR
Compared with usual care, PST with or without PSM is associated with significantly fewer deaths and thromboembolic events, without increased risk for a serious bleeding event, for a highly selected group of motivated adult patients requiring long-term anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists. Expand
Is home monitoring of international normalised ratio safer than clinic-based monitoring?
TLDR
It is concluded that self-monitoring/self-management appears to be safer than conventional management and is associated with consistently lower rates of thromboembolism and may also be associated with reduced risk of bleeding and death. Expand
Clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of different models of managing long-term oral anticoagulation therapy: a systematic review and economic modelling.
OBJECTIVES To examine the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of self-testing and self-management of oral anticoagulation treatment compared with clinic-based monitoring. DATA SOURCESExpand
Safety and effectiveness of point-of-care monitoring devices in patients on oral anticoagulant therapy: a meta-analysis
TLDR
The use of POCDs for OAT management is safe and may be more effective than laboratory-based monitoring, however, most patients are not good candidates for self-testing and self-management. Expand
Home-monitoring of oral anticoagulation vs. dabigatran. An indirect comparison.
TLDR
The indirect comparison of home monitoring of oral anticoagulation with dabigatran suggests that the treatments have similar impact on thrombosis, bleeding and death, but confidence in the estimate of effect is low to very low. Expand
Self-monitoring and self-management of oral anticoagulation (Review)
TLDR
Self-monitoring or self-management can improve the quality of oral anticoagulant therapy, leading to fewer thromboembolic events and lower mortality, without a reduction in the number of major bleeds. Expand
Self-management of oral anticoagulation in the elderly: rationale, design, baselines and oral anticoagulation control after one year of follow-up. A randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that self-management of oral anticoagulation is safe and feasible for elderly patients willing to participate in a structured training programme. Expand

Systematic review of studies of self-management of oral anticoagulation.
TLDR
Assessing the evidence for the possible improvement of therapeutic control of anticoagulation, reduction of major bleedings, thromboembolism and improvement of treatment-related quality of life in patients with self-managed oral antICOagulation therapy versus oral anticoAGulation patients on routine care found self-management care was found to be better.

TLDR
This meta-analysis shows that self-managed control of anticoagulation improves safety and efficacy and is probably a better alternative than conventional control for selected groups of patients. Expand
Oral anticoagulation self-management and management by a specialist anticoagulation clinic: a randomised cross-over comparison
TLDR
Self-management of INR in the population in this study is feasible and appears to result in control of anticoagulation that is at least equivalent to management by a specialist anticoAGulation clinic, and is better appreciated by patients. Expand
Self‐management of oral anticoagulation: long‐term results
TLDR
Not only the improvement in the quality of anticoagulation control after participation in the self-management programme is long lasting, but it may even improve further with the duration of patients’ selfmanagement. Expand
[Portable coagulometers: a systematic review of the evidence on self-management of oral anticoagulant treatment].
TLDR
The quality of the scientific evidence is heterogeneous and new oral anticaogulants, which have shown promising results, should be scrutinized for future changes in service provision. Expand

TLDR
For selected patients, patient's self-management of oral anticoagulant treatment is at least as effective and safe as usual care. Expand
A randomized trial of patient self-managed versus physician-managed oral anticoagulation.
TLDR
Self-management of warfarin by patients was not significantly better than physician-management in maintaining therapeutic anticoagulation and appeared safe in the present study population. Expand

TLDR
Self-managed anticoagulation is a reliable, easily learned method of controlling antICOagulation, and it is suitable for approximately two thirds of patients, with excellent results. Expand
Comparing Self-Management of Oral Anticoagulant Therapy with Clinic Management
TLDR
A randomized, controlled trial to directly compare self-management of oral anticoagulant treatment, as evaluated in terms of efficacy and safety in unselected patients, with management in an antICOagulation clinic. Expand

TLDR
These are the first UK data to demonstrate that patient self management is as safe as primary care management for a selected population, as assessed by therapeutic international normalised ratio (INR) control. Expand
