Warfarin therapy: evolving strategies in anticoagulation. (1/544)

Warfarin is the oral anticoagulant most frequently used to control and prevent thromboembolic disorders. Prescribing the dose that both avoids hemorrhagic complications and achieves sufficient suppression of thrombosis requires a thorough understanding of the drug's unique pharmacology. Warfarin has a complex dose-response relationship that makes safe and effective use a challenge. For most indications, the dose is adjusted to maintain the patient's International Normalized Ratio (INR) at 2 to 3. Because of the delay in factor II (prothrombin) suppression, heparin is administered concurrently for four to five days to prevent thrombus propagation. Loading doses of warfarin are not warranted and may result in bleeding complications. Interactions with other drugs must be considered, and therapy in elderly patients requires careful management. Current dosing recommendations are reviewed, and practical guidelines for the optimal use of warfarin are provided.  (+info)

A comparison of three months of anticoagulation with extended anticoagulation for a first episode of idiopathic venous thromboembolism. (2/544)

BACKGROUND: Patients who have a first episode of venous thromboembolism in the absence of known risk factors for thrombosis (idiopathic thrombosis) are often treated with anticoagulant therapy for three months. Such patients may benefit from longer treatment, however, because they appear to have an increased risk of recurrence after anticoagulant therapy is stopped. METHODS: In this double-blind study, we randomly assigned patients who had completed 3 months of anticoagulant therapy for a first episode of idiopathic venous thromboembolism to continue receiving warfarin, with the dose adjusted to achieve an international normalized ratio of 2.0 to 3.0, or to receive placebo for a further 24 months. Our goal was to determine the effects of extended anticoagulant therapy on rates of recurrent symptomatic venous thromboembolism and bleeding. RESULTS: A prespecified interim analysis of efficacy led to the early termination of the trial after 162 patients had been enrolled and followed for an average of 10 months. Of 83 patients assigned to continue to receive placebo, 17 had a recurrent episode of venous thromboembolism (27.4 percent per patient-year), as compared with 1 of 79 patients assigned to receive warfarin (1.3 percent per patient-year, P<0.001). Warfarin resulted in a 95 percent reduction in the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism (95 percent confidence interval, 63 to 99 percent). Three patients assigned to the warfarin group had nonfatal major bleeding (two had gastrointestinal bleeding and one genitourinary bleeding), as compared with none of those assigned to the placebo group (3.8 vs. 0 percent per patient-year, P=0.09). CONCLUSIONS: Patients with a first episode of idiopathic venous thromboembolism should be treated with anticoagulant agents for longer than three months.  (+info)

Dose-dependent fetal complications of warfarin in pregnant women with mechanical heart valves. (3/544)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence of warfarin fetal complications and whether they are dose-dependent. BACKGROUND: Gravid patients with mechanical heart valves require long-term anticoagulant therapy. Controversy exists concerning the appropriate treatment of these patients. METHODS: Forty-three women on warfarin carrying out 58 pregnancies were studied. For each patient with full-term pregnancy a caesarian section was scheduled for the 38th week during brief warfarin discontinuation. Maternal and fetal complications were evaluated. Fetal complications were divided according to the warfarin dosage < or = 5 mg and > 5 mg necessary to keep an international normalized ratio (INR) of 2.5 to 3.5, and analyzed subsequently. RESULTS: A total of 58 pregnancies were observed: 31 healthy babies (30 full term, 1 premature) and 27 fetal complications (22 spontaneous abortions, 2 warfarin embryopathies, 1 stillbirth, 1 ventricular septal defect, 1 growth retardation) were recorded. Two maternal valve thromboses occurred. No fetal or maternal bleeding was observed during caesarian sections or premature vaginal delivery. Patients whose warfarin doses during pregnancy were > 5 mg had 22 fetal complications, whereas those taking a dose < or = 5 mg had only five fetal complications (p = 0.0001). For an increase of the warfarin dose there was a substantially increased probability of fetal complications (p < 0.0001; p < 0.7316). CONCLUSIONS: There is a close dependency between warfarin dosage and fetal complications. Patients on warfarin anticoagulation may be delivered by planned caesarian section at the 38th week while briefly interrupting anticoagulation.  (+info)

Prediction of the international normalized ratio and maintenance dose during the initiation of warfarin therapy. (4/544)

AIMS: A pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic model, with Bayesian parameter estimation, was used to retrospectively predict the daily International Normalized Ratios (INRs) and the maintenance doses during the initiation of warfarin therapy in 74 inpatients. METHODS: INRs and maintenance doses predicted by the model were compared with the actual INRs and the eventual maintenance dose. Cases with drugs or medical conditions interacting with warfarin or receiving concurrent heparin therapy were not excluded. As the study was retrospective, model predictions of the maintenance dose were not those that were administered. Mean prediction error (MPE) and percentage absolute prediction errors (PAPE) were used to assess the model predictions. RESULTS: INR MPE ranged from -0.07 to 0.06 and median PAPE from 10% to 20%. Dose MPE ranged from -0.7 to 0.17 mg and median PAPE from 16.7% to 37.5%. Accurate and precise dose predictions were obtained after 3 or more INR feedback's. CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that the model can accurately predict daily INRs and the maintenance dose in this sample of cases. The model can be incorporated into computer decision-support systems for warfarin therapy and may lead to improvement in the initiation of warfarin therapy.  (+info)

Home prophylactic warfarin anticoagulation program after hip and knee arthroplasty. (5/544)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficiency of a program designed to maintain prophylactic oral anticoagulation within a target range for 6 weeks after hip and knee arthroplasty. DESIGN: A prospective continuous quality improvement indicator. SETTING: A tertiary care university hospital. PATIENTS: Patients who underwent hip and knee arthroplasty and had no indications for routine anticoagulation other than postoperative thromboembolism prophylaxis. INTERVENTION: An outpatient warfarin prophylaxis program, which included an information letter given to the patient. Home Care coordinated community laboratory services, communication with and anticoagulant dosage adjustment by the patient's personal family physician. OUTCOME MEASURES: The proportion of international normalized ratio (INR) values within, below and above the target range of 2.0 to 3.0. RESULTS: Sixty-two patients were enrolled over a 3-month period. On the day of hospital discharge, 64% of patients had INR values that were within the target range, 31% were below and 5% were above. After hospital discharge, 42% of the INR values were within the target range, 48% were below and 10% were above. CONCLUSION: Despite a program designed to address patient information, physician communication and laboratory testing, tight control of home INR values could not be achieved with the existing resources of Home Care and family physicians.  (+info)

Interference of lupus anticoagulants in prothrombin time assays: implications for selection of adequate methods to optimize the management of thrombosis in the antiphospholipid-antibody syndrome. (7/544)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Prolonged anticoagulation aiming at International Normalized Ratio (INR) values > 3.0 has been recommended for patients with thrombosis and the antiphospholipid-antibody syndrome. We evaluated the influence of anticoagulant antibodies in two different prothrombin time (PT) assays carried out on plasma from lupus anticoagulant patients on oral anticoagulation. DESIGN AND METHODS: INR values obtained with a combined (final test plasma dilution 1:20) and a recombinant (final test plasma dilution 1:3) thromboplastin were compared in 17 patients with persistent lupus anticoagulants (LA) receiving oral anticoagulant treatment and monitored for 69.8 patient-years. Doses of anticoagulant drugs were always assigned based on the results obtained with the combined thromboplastin, aiming at a target INR of 2.5 or 3.0 for patients with venous or arterial thromboembolic disease. Paired determinations with both reagents were also obtained throughout the study period in 150 patients on stable oral anticoagulation but free of antiphospholipid antibodies. Total IgG fractions were purified from selected patients to evaluate effect in the two PT assay systems. RESULTS: No patient experienced recurrence of thrombosis or major bleeding complications (95% confidence interval: 0.1-6.5 per 100 patient-years). INR values with the recombinant reagent were significantly higher than with the combined reagent in 8 LA patients (mean DINR ranging from 0.17 to 0.54) of the degree of anticoagulation was overestimated in all but one LA patients with the recombinant reagent when compared to the DINR observed in non-LA patients (-0.64 +/- 0.42). The anti-cardiolipin IgG titer (r(2) = 0.43, p = 0.004) and the anti-b(2)GPI IgG titer (r(2) = 0.30, p = 0.023) were positively associated with the mean deltaINR observed in LA patients. When added to plasmas with different levels of vitamin K-dependent factors, total IgG fractions from 6 LA patients with significant overestimation of the INR with the recombinant reagent (mean DINR ranging from 0.17 to 0.54, group 1) and from 7 LA patients with mean deltaINR < or = 0.0 (ranging from -0.25 to 0.04, group 2) reproduced the effects observed ex vivo in the two assay systems. However, when total IgG fractions were tested at the same final concentration in the two PT assay systems, there was no difference in the clotting times determined with total IgG fractions from group 1 and group 2 LA patients. Addition of negatively charged liposomes (0.4 and 0.8 mg/mL final concentrations) to platelet free plasma from LA-free patients on stable oral anticoagulation caused a 20% to 48% prolongation of the prothrombin time determined with the recombinant reagent. In contrast, no significant prolongation of the prothrombin time determined with the recombinant reagent was observed upon addition of negatively charged liposomes to plasma from group 1 LA patients. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: These results confirm previous suggestions of assay-dependency of INR values in LA patients on oral anticoagulation. For these patients, accurate INR values may be obtained using combined thromboplastin reagents that permit testing at high plasma dilution.  (+info)

Is the international normalised ratio (INR) reliable? A trial of comparative measurements in hospital laboratory and primary care settings. (8/544)

AIM: To determine the reliability of international normalised ratio (INR) measurement in primary care by practice nurses using near patient testing (NPT), in comparison with results obtained within hospital laboratories by varied methods. METHODS: As part of an MRC funded study into primary care oral anticoagulation management, INR measurements obtained in general practice were validated against values on the same samples obtained in hospital laboratories. A prospective comparative trial was undertaken between three hospital laboratories and nine general practices. All patients attending general practice based anticoagulant clinics had parallel INR estimations performed in general practice and in a hospital laboratory. RESULTS: 405 tests were performed. Comparison between results obtained in the practices and those in the reference hospital laboratory (gold standard), which used the same method of testing for INR, showed a correlation coefficient of 0.96. Correlation coefficients comparing the results with the various standard laboratory techniques ranged from 0.86 to 0.92. It was estimated that up to 53% of tests would have resulted in clinically significant differences (change in warfarin dose) depending upon the site and method of testing. The practice derived results showed a positive bias ranging from 0.28 to 1.55, depending upon the site and method of testing. CONCLUSIONS: No technical problems associated with INR testing within primary care were uncovered. Discrepant INR results are as problematic in hospital settings as they are in primary care. These data highlight the failings of the INR to standardise when different techniques and reagents are used, an issue which needs to be resolved. For primary care to become more involved in therapeutic oral anticoagulation monitoring, close links are needed between hospital laboratories and practices, particularly with regard to training and quality assurance.  (+info)

Second, except for patients who have bileaflet mechanical aortic valvesand do not have atrial fibrillation, the recommended target INR range for patients with mechanical heart valves (2.5-3.5) is higher than the corresponding target INR range for the treatment of acute venous thromboembolism (2.0-3.0), suggesting that more intense antithrombotic therapyis appropriate.Further, although warfarin, with a target INR of 2.0 to 3.0, is highly effective in the long-term treatment of acute venous thromboembolism, even with the use of a more intense warfarin regimen (INR of 2.5-3.5), theaddition of aspirin to the warfarin regimen improves efficacy for patients with mechanical heart valves (albeit at the cost of an increase in the rate of minor bleeding).Given this information, we recommend that if subcutaneous UFH is used to prevent thrombosis in pregnant women with mechanical heart valves, the starting dose should be high(17500-20000 U every 12 hours) and adjusted aggressively to achieve a mid-interval ...
Maintaining oral anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists remains one of the more challenging aspects of medicine. To meet this challenge, the use of both anticoagulation clinics and point-of-care monitors by providers has clearly improved anticoagulation control. Just as diabetic patients have learned that self-monitoring can improve control of their disease, patients undergoing anticoagulation and their providers have learned that self-monitoring using point-of-care prothrombin time devices can improve anticoagulation control (1). Well over 100 000 Europeans and an increasing number of Americans are self-monitoring their oral anticoagulation. Heneghan and colleagues reviewed 14 RCTs of self-monitoring compared with care provided by anticoagulation clinics or the patients primary care physician. Self-monitoring resulted in increased time of INR in the therapeutic range, fewer bleeding and thromboembolic events, and lower mortality. Fewer complications occurred whether patients self-tested ...

The creation of optimal devices for patient self-testing protocols for anticoagulation management is an area of active medical research. The current pilot study represents the initial step in the development of a new customized device for this purpose, the vMetrics - Anticoagulation Monitoring System. The v-Metrics Anticoagulation Monitoring System (vMetrics AMS) is defined by: 1. A PT/INR home monitoring unit which interfaces to FDA approved PT/INR home monitors such as the Hemosense INRatio device, and 2. an anticoagulation clinic patient management application which manages patient communications, database of prior test results, testing schedules, and communication to an EMR.. The INR home-monitoring system to be tested in this study will address several of the limitations of currently available technologies and practices for standard and home INR self-testing. The proposed project will develop a self-testing device that maximizes safety and efficiency for both the patient and the health care ...
Our data indicate that standardization for control of warfarin anticoagulant therapy may be less secure than anticipated. Individuals with similar INR values have very different TF threshold responses to coagulation. Even a single individual studied over the course of anticoagulant therapy is highly variable. The data show the wide range of anticoagulation that can be achieved without clinical complications, suggesting that bleeding risks still present are due to preexisting vascular anomalies.. The TF concentration chosen to evaluate the PT was selected to produce a CT of 11 to 15 seconds.21 The high concentration of thromboplastin reagent used was chosen to avoid competition from the contact activation pathway. However, the in vitro concentrations of thromboplastin reagents used in these assays are massive compared with the concentrations likely encountered during pathological vascular challenge. It should be recalled that PT is also not influenced by platelets or blood cells, FVIII, FIX, and ...

METHODS AND RESULTS: From 2000 to 2015, 540 consecutive adults < 65 years (mean age 53±8 years, 67% male) underwent elective isolated mechanical AVR. Patients with infective endocarditis, associated procedures and previous cardiac surgeries were excluded. Eighty-nine percent had a target INR of 2.5-3.5 and 25% were also taking aspirin at the time of last follow-up. Only 10.5% of patients used home anticoagulation management. Primary outcomes of interest were hemorrhagic events during follow-up and quality of life (QoL) using a valve-specific questionnaire. Secondary outcomes were survival and freedom from major adverse prosthetic events (MAPE). Bleeding events were reported using the International Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis definitions. Mean follow-up was 11.3 ± 4.5 years and was 96% complete. Early mortality was 2% (n=11). A total of 48 patients experiencing major bleeding events were reported (8.9%), of which 17% (n=8) had recurrences. Freedom from major bleeding events at 5, 10 ...

After adjusting for age, baseline National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale, and stroke subtype, warfarin-treated patients had significantly increased risks of developing symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage (adjusted OR, 14.7; 95% CI, 1.3 to 54.3). A trend for poorer stroke recovery and increased mortality was observed in warfarin-treated patients on univariate, but not on multivariable, analyses.. ...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) patients frequently require anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) to prevent thromboembolic events, but their use increases the risk of hemorrhage. We evaluated time spent in therapeutic range (TTR), proportion of international normalized ratio (INR) measurements in range (PINRR), adverse events in relation to INR, and predictors of INR control in AF patients using VKAs. We searched MEDLINE, CENTRAL and EMBASE (1990-June 2013) for studies of AF patients receiving adjusted-dose VKAs that reported INR control measures (TTR and PINRR) and/or reported an INR measurement coinciding with thromboembolic or hemorrhagic events. Random-effects meta-analyses and meta-regression were performed. Ninety-five articles were included. Sixty-eight VKA-treated study groups reported measures of INR control, while 43 studies reported an INR around the time of the adverse event. Patients spent 61% (95% CI, 59-62%), 25% (95% CI, 23-27%) and 14% (95% CI, 13-15%) of their time within, below
Health care professionals (HCP) are known key elements of effective patients counselling and education. For patients taking warfarin, education about the dose, side effects, and toxicity is clearly identified as a cornerstone of achieving improved health and quality of life. The study objective was to evaluate the patients knowledge about warfarin and assess the impact of the health care professionals counselling in enhancing patients knowledge in achieving warfarin therapeutic outcomes. A six-month prospective multicentered study was conducted in three hospitals, enrolling 300 patients admitted to the cardiac care unit and internal medicine departments. Patients warfarin knowledge and INR levels were assessed before and after the clinical pharmacist counselling. The main therapeutic outcome was the impact of the clinical pharmacist-physician counselling on improving patients education and achieving therapeutic INR level. A higher mean knowledge about warfarin score was found after counselling as

The introduction of drug-eluting stents (DES) was associated not only with a widening of the indication for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) but also with longer antithrombotic therapy duration. Dual antiplatelet therapy with ASA and a thienopyridine is very efficient in preventing adverse events after coronary stenting but it is inferior to oral anticoagulation (OAC) to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. OAC is also superior to antiplatelet therapy in patients with mechanical heart valves and the therapy of choice for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. OAC is also administered for left ventricular thrombi and low ejection fraction. There is an increasing number of patients undergoing coronary stenting who are in need of life-long anticoagulation therapy and would therefore require a triple therapy consisting of aspirin, clopidogrel and oral anticoagulation. As oral anticoagulation and antithrombotic therapy impair primary and ...
The results of this study suggest that this pharmacist-managed anticoagulation clinic is associated with high levels of both patient and physician satisfaction.

To achieve similar target INR range (2.0-3.0), variant CYP2C9*1/*3 homozygotes or heterozygotes required lower daily mean maintain doses (2.14±0. 55 mg) than wild-type CYP2C9*1/*1 patients did (3. 17±0. 74 mg).. ...
Prothrombin time (PT) is the leading test for monitoring oral anticoagulation therapy (OAT). We sought to determine INR taking into account only active coagulation factors FII, FVII and FX without inhibition in patient plasmas and calibrator kits.. We measured PT using a combined thromboplastin reagent. The calculation was based on a new PT method, which measures active coagulation factors (F II, F VII, FX) and corrects the errors caused by inactive coagulation factors.. On this basis, an INR result with and without inhibition for individual patient samples was also calculated and applied to 200 plasma samples obtained from OAT patients. Conspicuous variation in inhibition between the four calibration kits was noted. The kinetics of this inhibition was closest to a noncompetitive pattern.. The need of correction for INRs of single patients increases with higher INRs. At the same level of patient INRs the coagulation inhibiton varies markedly.. It has been known that different thromboplastin ...
PT test results used to be given in seconds, along with a control value. The control value usually varied somewhat from day to day because the reagents used varied. The patients PT value was supposed to be approximately equal to the control value. Some laboratories used to report PT values as percentages of normal activity, because the patients results were compared with a curve representing normal clotting time. A normal PT result was 85% to 100%.. To have uniform PT results for physicians in different parts of the country and the world, the World Health Organization has recommended that PT results now include the use of the international normalized ratio (INR) value. The reported INR results are independent of the reagents or methods used. Many hospitals are now reporting PT times in both absolute and INR numbers. Factors such as weight, body mass index, age, diet, and concurrent medications are known to affect warfarin dose requirements during anticoagulation therapy. Warfarin interferes ...
There is no evidence of increased risk for major bleeding as a result of falls in hospitalized patients taking warfarin (strength of recommendation [SOR]: B, based on retrospective cohort studies).

Research Abstract Purpose: Intraosseous (IO) vascular access is useful for fluid and medication delivery and blood sampling when intravenous access is difficult or impossible. Serum lactate is a potentially useful biomarker when managing patients with severe sepsis or trauma. IO blood values correlate with peripheral intravenous (IV) blood values for a number of laboratory tests, with little clinical data for the suitability of IO blood for determining lactate and PT/INR levels. The objective was to add to available data comparing IO marrow/blood (initial 1 mL aspirate), IO blood (subsequent aspirate), and IV and capillary blood to determine if there is a correlation between specimens for serum lactate and PT/INR levels. Design: Study data presented was collected from two-single center prospective studies. Setting: The studies were conducted at a teaching institution associated with a local university. Participants/Subjects: Healthy, non-pregnant female and male volunteers 21 years or older with ...
Stephan Moll, MD writes… A new drug for the urgent reversal of warfarin was approved by the FDA today, April 29th, 2013, (announcement by the FDA is here), called Kcentra. The drug is derived from the plasma of multiple healthy blood donors and contains the clotting factors that are low in warfarin-treated patients, i.e. factors II, VII, IX, and X. It is also referred to as a 4-factor concentrate, or non-activated Prothrombin Complex Concentrate (PCC). The drug prescribing information (package insert) is here.. Up until now only 3-factor concentrates (PCC) and fresh frozen plasma (FFP) were available in the U.S., in addition to vitamin K, to treat major bleeding in warfarin-treated patients or reverse warfarin in case major surgery was urgently needed. The new drug is a welcome addition to the armamentarium when having to treat warfarin-associated major bleeding.

When an ICH occurs, the patients situation hinges on the balance between how great is the embolic risk while not receiving anticoagulants, and how big is the threat of the hemorrhage if the anticoagulant effect is not reversed promptly. Although several studies which compared the use of different reversal agents failed to demonstrate any improvement in prognosis and survival, at the present moment the consensus seem to be that anticoagulation should be rapidly reversed after an ICH. The second question to be answered is whether and when should be oral anticoagulation treatment restarted. Although the risk of thromboembolism in patients off anticoagulation seems to be higher than the risk of ICH recurrence, there is a marked paucity of prospective large studies on the real risk of ICH recurrence when OAC is resumed, paucity that probably emphasizes the ethical challenge of prescribing ...
A potential drug interaction exists between oral corticosteroids and warfarin, but there is limited evidence to document it. A recent retrospective review of 387 medical records of patients followed in an anticoagulation clinic demonstrated an increase in international normalized ratio (INR) in the majority of patients who had corticosteroids added to their warfarin therapy. Patients were included in the study if they were stable on warfarin therapy and were prescribed a shortterm course of corticosteroids. They were excluded if they were prescribed an antibiotic or any other medication that had a probable interaction with warfarin at the same time the corticosteroids were started. Thirty-two patients met the criteria. The primary outcome assessed was the difference between pre-and poststeroid INR values. Secondary end points included bleeding events, emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and warfarin dose modifications. Ninety-seven percent of the 32 patients studied had changes in ...
We generated network plots of comparisons to illustrate which interventions had been compared within randomised trials (direct comparisons). Different doses or frequencies of administration (once daily or twice daily) of DOACs were analysed separately and hence appear as separate points in network plots. We defined two independent nodes for warfarin interventions, labelled as warfarin (INR 2.0-3.0) and warfarin (INR 3.0-4.0) respectively. The first of these formed the reference treatment across all networks. We also included in warfarin (INR 2.0-3.0) some interventions with an INR range of 2.5-3.5 or 2.0-4.5. In some trials the INR range for some patients in the warfarin arm was subtherapeutic (below 2.0), so that the total INR range was 1.6-3.0. These interventions were excluded from the main analysis, but merged with the INR 2.0-3.0 node in a sensitivity analysis.. We considered two separate nodes for antiplatelets, less than 150 mg once daily and 150 mg or more once daily. The dose range ...

Coaguchek device is a device for self-monitoring of INR, blood coagulation test. Used by patients on oral anticoagution therapy (Warfarin, Coumadin).
Previous reports of discrepancies in international normalised ratio (INR) measurement between centres have focused on hospital based methodologies.1-3 Previously, we have demonstrated differences in derived INR values for the same sample tested in primary care and in one of three different haematology laboratories.4 Our present study is an extension of the previous one, investigating comparative results based on contemporaneous samples measured in one primary care centre and in two hospital laboratories using a variety of techniques.. Venous blood was drawn from patients in one primary care centre over a three month period. The sample was tested on site for INR estimation using the Thrombotrak NPT and Thrombotest reagent. The remainder of the venous sample was placed in a citrated collection bottle and sent to two reference laboratories routinely used by the general practitioner to measure INR values (laboratories 1 and 2). Laboratory 1 determined INR values using three separate methods: a ...

Warfarin Guide offers three resources essential for systematic and careful evidence-based anticoagulation with Warfarin. First it reviews the latest recommendations on indications, INR targets, and treatment duration from the American College of Chest Physicians 8th Edition guidelines on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy from 2008, updated for the 2012 guideline. Second it offers a protocol for Warfarin dose adjustment depending upon INR result. And third is a discussion of protocols for the initiation of Warfarin. These resources come from point of care guides on these topics in the family medicine literature as well as the 2012 ACCP guideline. The app also alludes to guidance for management of peri-operative Warfarin by directing the user to our PreOpEval iPhone app.. ...

Medical experts stress the importance of doing your self-testing in consultation with your doctor, working in conjunction with an IDTF. While the cost of testing through an IDTF varies depending on your insurance coverage, most plans typically cover the services provided by an IDTF, including patient training with the device, providing the equipment and supplies for monitoring your INR, and reporting your test results to your doctor. However, you can purchase PT/INR devices for home testing on your own. For example, on the Internet the devices can be acquired from some online medical supply companies and from more widely recognized online retailers, such as Amazon. The price for the devices ranges widely, from $600 to more than $3,000, and the price for test strips ranges from $7 to $18 per test. You should note that in some cases the online retailers of these devices have... Full article: https://www.stoptheclot.org/inr-self-testing.htm ...

Ting, C.; Sylvester, K.W.; Schurr, J.W., 2018: Time in the Therapeutic Range for Assessing Anticoagulation Quality in Patients Receiving Continuous Unfractionated Heparin
No effective treatment for delayed radiation-induced neurotoxicity has been established. Its natural course is highly variable, but spontaneous recovery has been well documented. Here we report our experience with therapeutic anticoagulation in patients with cerebral lesions (n = 3), cranial nerve lesions (n = 1) or myelopathy (n = 4) attributed to irradiation. Two of three patients with cerebral lesions and the patient with cranial nerve lesions showed a minor improvement of clinical symptoms. In contrast, none of the patients with radiation myelopathy improved. No patient suffered hemorrhage or other adverse effects of anticoagulation. Overall, anticoagulation therapy demonstrates only modest activity for delayed radiation-induced neurotoxicity in this small case series. « ...
