First results of Angiomax (bivalirudin) vs. heparin in transcatheter aortic valve interventions
Date:11/8/2011

educed rates of in-hospital major bleeding
  • Reduced rates of in-hospital net adverse clinical events (major bleeding, all-cause mortality, myocardial infarction or stroke)

    Dr. Dangas noted, "Technologies to enable heart valve replacement or repair without cracking open a patient's chest are emerging rapidly. Last week's US approval of the SapienTM valve is the most recent example."

    Anticoagulants are needed peri-procedurally to prevent clotting on the treated area and clotting in other organs such as the brain, which can result in a stroke; however, anticoagulants carry a risk of vascular and bleeding complications. Dr. Dangas said, "Advances in procedures such as PCI, valvuloplasty and TAVI may require improvements in anticoagulation to yield improved patient outcomes."

    Clive Meanwell, MD, PhD, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Medicines Company said, "These results validate the commitment we made to study Angiomax once our patent rights were supported. I look forward to seeing the BRAVO program move ahead with a planned study in more patients next year. With continued certainty, we will be positioned to explore the potential of Angiomax to deliver clinical and economic advantages in other uses."
