and bleeding similar to warfarin."

In the RE-LY trial, an imaging technique known as transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was encouraged prior to cardioversion to identify existing clots in the left atrium of the heart, which would suggest an increased risk of stroke or embolism associated with cardioversion.(1)  TEE was performed prior to cardioversion in more patients on dabigatran 110mg and PRADAXA 150mg than warfarin (25.5%, 24.1%, 13.3%, respectively).(1)  Rates of stroke and systemic embolism were similar across all treatment arms for those who underwent TEE-guided cardioversions (0.61%, 0.00% and 1.14%, respectively; dabigatran 110mg vs. warfarin, p=0.65; PRADAXA 150mg vs. warfarin, p=0.17) and those who did not undergo TEE (0.83%, 0.39% and 0.52%, respectively; dabigatran 110mg vs. warfarin, p=0.54; PRADAXA 150mg vs. warfarin, p=0.75).(1)

"Physicians have expressed excitement about the recent approval of PRADAXA to reduce the risk of stroke for patients with atrial fibrillation," said Paul Reilly, PhD, clinical program director, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  "Boehringer Ingelheim remains committed to publishing data analyses from the RE-LY trial to help inform physicians about the clinical implications for patients taking PRADAXA."  

PRADAXA is the first oral anticoagulant to be approved in the U.S. in more than 50 years.  PRADAXA is now available in more than 35,000 pharmacies nationwide.  PRADAXA 75mg is also available for patients who have severe renal impairment.
