Review offers insight on managing surgical patients who are taking new drugs to prevent blood clots
Date:4/28/2014

New oral anticoagulant drugs that treat and prevent clots offer a much-needed alternative to warfarin, which has been used for more than 6 decades and has serious shortcomings.

"Our review covers recommendation for the discontinuation of new oral anticoagulant drugs before surgical procedures and resuming of these drugs after procedures." The review also notes that because the drugs are eliminated by the kidneys, they require dose reductions dependent on a patient's kidney function. Also, new oral anticoagulants are not recommended in patients with severe liver dysfunction. And because the three drugs have somewhat different
