New Oral Anticoagulants: “everyday clinical practice” experience

Author(s):
Pedro Abreu
Abstract:
Introduction: New oral anticoagulants (NOACs) were shown, when compared to warfarin in a randomized controlled trial setting, to be effective in reducing the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients. 
Objectives: This presentation will assess, with special emphasis on rivaroxaban, efficacy, safety and persistence/adherence in an “everyday clinical practice” population of drug-naïve NVAF patients treated with NOACs. 
Methods: A PubMed® database non-systematic search of the latest articles published on efficacy, safety and persistence/adherence outcomes of NOACs as used in “everyday clinical practice” was performed. 
Results: Efficacy, safety and persistence/adherence outcomes of NOACs in an “everyday clinical practice” population of drug-naïve patients with AF were consistent with the results of previous randomized controlled trials across a wide range of “real life” patients.
