An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.
Agents that prevent clotting.
OXIDOREDUCTASES which mediate vitamin K metabolism by converting inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K.

In such case, blood cannot be effectively pumped into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES). It is caused by abnormal impulse generation.
Widely distributed enzymes that carry out oxidation-reduction reactions in which one atom of the oxygen molecule is incorporated into the organic substrate; the other oxygen atom is reduced and combined with hydrogen ions to form water. They are also known as monooxygenases or hydroxylases. These reactions require two substrates as reductants for each of the two oxygen atoms. There are different classes of monooxygenases depending on the type of hydrogen-providing cosubstrate (COENZYMES) required in the mixed-function oxidation.
An amino acid formed in vivo by the degradation of dihydrouracil and carnosine.

Effect of warfarin on the induction and course of experimental endocarditis. (1/1963)

The effect of warfarin treatment on an experimental endocarditis was studied in rabbits. Warfarin had no effect on the induction of a Streptococcus sanguis infection in catheter-induced endocardial vegetations, and the course of this infection was also unaltered. However, warfarin treatment resulted in rapidly progressive bacteremia, probably due to impaired circulation in clearing organs such as the lungs, liver, and spleen. Warfarin also reduced the survival time of the infected rabbits, in which pulmonary edema and extensive lung hemorrhages may have been a contributory factor.  (+info)

Warfarin therapy: evolving strategies in anticoagulation. (2/1963)

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. (3/1963)

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)

Pregnancy in patients after valve replacement. (4/1963)

This report is based on information obtained from a questionnaire sent to major cardiac centres in the United Kingdom. This produced details of 39 pregnancies in 34 patients after valve replacement. The 39 pregnancies gave rise to 30 healthy babies. The small size of the series probably reflects both the increasing rarity of young women with rheumatic heart disease in this country and the cautious attitude of their cardiologists. This makes it likely that these women represented the best end of the spectrum of cardiac function after valve replacement. Twenty-four pregnancies in 20 women who were not given anticoagulants producted 23 healthy babies and 1 spontaneous abortion. This group comprised 6 patients with free aortic homografts, 1 patient with a fascia lata mitral valve, 1 with a Beall tricuspid prosthesis, 1 with a combined mitral homograft and Starr Edwards aortic prosthesis, and 1 with mitral and aortic frame-mounted fascia lata valves. There were no maternal deaths or thromboembolic complications in this group which included 5 patients who were in atrial fibrillation. Fifteen pregnancies in 14 women who received anticoagulants gave rise to 7 healthy babies. The fetal losses were one stillbirth, one intrauterine death at 34 weeks, and 3 spontaneous abortions; one surviving child has hydrocephalus as a result of blood clot and there were 2 maternal deaths. This group included 13 patients with Starr Edwards valves, 11 mitral and 2 aortic. A patient with a Hammersmith mitral valve was the only one to have been treated with heparin and her valve thrombosed. One patient with a mounted mitral homograft had a cerebral embolus. Nine of these patients were in atrial fibrillation. In 3 additional patients the valve replacement was carried out during pregnancy. Two of the patients survived operation. In one of these who was treated with warfarin the pregnancy well, but there is an increased fetal wastage in patients pregnancy gave rise to a congenitally malformed baby who died in the neonatal period. The baby born to the mother who did not receive anticoagulants has a hare-lip and talipes. Women with artificial valves can tolerate the haemodynamic load of pregnancy well, but there is an increased fetal wastage in patients taking oral anticoagulants. This is probably largely attributable to fetal haemorrhage but there is also a risk of malformation caused by a teratogenic effect of warfarin. Experience gained in non-pregnant patients suggests that withholding anticoagulatns in pregnant patients with prosthetic valves would usually be undersirable but warfarin should be avoided. The advantages of biological valves were apparent in this series.  (+info)

Medical liability risk avoidance: a case for adopting the International Normalized Ratio (INR) system. (5/1963)

Since bleeding is a common adverse effect associated with the oral anticoagulant warfarin, maximizing the therapeutic potential of this drug requires close laboratory monitoring. The International Normalized Ratio (INR) is a system that has been developed to improve and standardize the assessment of the intensity of oral anticoagulation therapy. Clinical information and medicolegal arguments supporting the adoption of this system are reviewed. The potential for improvement in patient outcomes and minimization of medical liability favors the adoption of the INR system.  (+info)

Strategy for balancing anticoagulation and hemostasis in aortocoronary bypass surgery: blood conservation and graft patency. (6/1963)

The minimal effective dose of aprotinin on hemostasis under normothermic perfusion, the influence of anticoagulant therapy on graft patency, and the thromboembolic and hemorrhagic events were investigated after aortocoronary bypass graft operation (CABG). One hundred CABG patients under normothermic perfusion were randomly divided into the following groups: (1) coumadin plus acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) (n=32); no aprotinin used during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB); (2) minimal-dose, 10(6) KIU during CPB, aprotinin used, followed by ASA and coumadin (n=36); and (3) very low-dose, total of 2x10(6) KIU before CPB and during CPB; aprotinin used; anticoagulation therapy with heparin early after surgery and followed by replacement with ASA and coumadin (n=32). The patency of arterial grafts was 100% in all groups. The patency of vein grafts was 95-98% and there was no difference among the groups. The blood loss was significantly reduced in both aprotinin groups (groups 2 and 3) compared to the coumadin plus ASA group, although no difference existed between the 2 aprotinin groups. Postoperative thrombotic and hemorrhagic events were not observed in any group. From this study, it was concluded that 10(6) KIU aprotinin in pump-prime-only followed by oral ASA and coumadin was the recommendation from the benefit/cost consideration.  (+info)

Dose-dependent fetal complications of warfarin in pregnant women with mechanical heart valves. (7/1963)

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)

Risk assessment and anticoagulation for primary stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation. (8/1963)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Risk assessment before anticoagulation is important for effective stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS: A study was undertaken in patients with AF to investigate the contribution of clinical and echocardiography (ECHO) criteria to treatment decisions on anticoagulation. Patients were stratified by age and stroke risk; contraindications to anticoagulation and warfarin use were assessed. The value of ECHO in treatment decisions, effect of age, and existing anticoagulation practice were evaluated. RESULTS: The mean+/-SD age of 234 patients was 67.1+/-11.8 years, and 122 (52%) were women. Clinical risk factors were present in 74 of 80 patients (92%) aged >75 years compared with 99 of 154 patients (64%) 75 years of age, and was associated with clinical risk factors in all patients. Eligibility for anticoagulation was seen in 72 of 154 (47%) to 105 of 154 (68%) patients aged 75 years, regardless of criteria used (P<0.01). Warfarin was being used in 55 of 105 patients (51%) 75 years (P<0.001). Anticoagulation was being undertaken in 7 of 49 patients (14%) +info)

The aim of this study was to investigate the possible effects of EPHX1 and VKORC1L1 polymorphisms on variability of responses to warfarin. Sixteen single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 201 patients with stable warfarin doses were analyzed including genes of VKORC1, CYP2C9, CYP4F2, GGCX, EPHX1 and VKORC1L1. Univariate analysis was conducted for the association of genotypes with stable warfarin doses. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to investigate factors that independently affected the inter-individual variability of warfarin dose requirements. The rs4072879 of VKORC1L1 (A , G) was significantly associated with stable warfarin doses; wild homozygote carriers (AA) required significantly lower stable warfarin doses than those with the variant G allele (5.02 ± 1.56 vs. 5.96 ± 2.01 mg; p = 0.001). Multivariate analysis showed that EPHX1 rs1877724 and VKORC1L1 rs4072879 accounted for 1.5% and 1.3% of the warfarin dose variability. Adding EPHX1 and VKORC1L1 SNPs to the base model ...
Warfarin sodium tablets, USP are contraindicated in women who are pregnant except in pregnant women with mechanical heart valves, who are at high risk of thromboembolism, and for whom the benefits of warfarin sodium may outweigh the risks [see Warnings and Precautions (5.7)]. Warfarin sodium can cause fetal harm. Exposure to warfarin during the first trimester of pregnancy caused a pattern of congenital malformations in about 5% of exposed offspring. Because these data were not collected in adequate and well-controlled studies, this incidence of major birth defects is not an adequate basis for comparison to the estimated incidences in the control group or the U.S. general population and may not reflect the incidences observed in practice. Consider the benefits and risks of warfarin sodium and possible risks to the fetus when prescribing warfarin sodium to a pregnant woman. Adverse outcomes in pregnancy occur regardless of the health of the mother or the use of medications. The estimated ...
Introduction: Warfarin reduces stroke risk in atrial fibrillation (AF), but increases bleed risk. Frequent testing with dose adjustment is needed to maintain INR levels in the therapeutic range of 2.0-3.0. Novel anticoagulants (NOACs) now challenge warfarin as stroke-preventive therapy for AF. They are available at fixed doses but costlier. Warfarin anticoagulation at a time in therapeutic range (TTR) ≥70% is similarly effective and safe as NOACs. It is unclear whether AF patients with TTR ≥70% will remain stably anticoagulated and avoid the need to switch to a NOAC. We assessed stability of warfarin anticoagulation in AF patients with an initial TTR ≥70% primarily managed by anticoagulation clinics.. Hypothesis: AF patients who achieve TTR ≥70% in the first 6 months of warfarin therapy will maintain high TTR subsequently.. Methods: Within the community-based ATRIA cohort of AF patients, we identified 2521 new warfarin users who continued warfarin therapy over 15 months. We excluded ...
Background: Patients on long term warfarin treatment can have cerebral ischemic events despite therapeutic levels. We sought to determine unique patient attributes that result in ischemic events on therapeutic warfarin treatment.. Methods: We reviewed the medical records and imaging data of consecutive patients with cerebral ischemic events who were on long term warfarin treatment over a 4 year period. We stratified the patients based on international normalized ratio (2.0-3.0 versus ,2.0) and compared the demographic and clinical characteristics between the two groups of patients.. Results: A total of 163 patients (mean age±SD; 77.3 ± 11.2) on long term warfarin treatment were admitted with cerebral ischemic events (97 ischemic strokes and 40 transient ischemic attacks). The mean age was not different between patients who were sub therapeutic and therapeutic on warfarin (78.2 ±11.6 versus 77.5±10.5, p=0.7). The proportion of patients with hypertension (87.2% versus 84.0%, p=0.6), diabetes ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Safety of Intramuscular Influenza Immunization Among Patients Receiving Long-term Warfarin Anticoagulation Therapy. AU - Raj, G.. AU - Kumar, R.. AU - McKinney, W. P.. PY - 1995/7/24. Y1 - 1995/7/24. N2 - Background: The effect of influenza vaccine on the prothrombin time (PT) among patients taking warfarin is unclear, as previous studies have shown conflicting results and the clinical significance of such a purported effect is uncertain. Moreover, to our knowledge, there are no data confirming the safety of intramuscular injections in patients receiving anticoagulant therapy with regard to possible local hematoma formation. We measured the effect of influenza vaccine on the PT among patients receiving long-term warfarin sodium therapy and evaluated the safety of intramuscular injections among them. Methods: Forty-one adult patients who were receiving anticoagulant therapy were given 0.5 mL of influenza vaccine intramuscularly. Prothrombin time and arm girth were measured at ...
Good evidence exists that adjusted-dose warfarin reduces the risk for stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (1). However, because regular monitoring of the INR is required and because of the risk for hemorrhage, a safer alternative is desirable. Aspirin is safer and more convenient but less effective than warfarin (2, 3). This study was restricted to patients who had at least 1 risk factor for stroke in addition to atrial fibrillation. In these patients, the effects of low-intensity, fixed-dose warfarin plus aspirin were disappointing; the risk for stroke increased, and the risk for major hemorrhage was not reduced. Patients who are at high risk for stroke stand to gain more from treatment than patients at low risk for stroke, and the SPAF III study confirms the benefit of adjusted-dose warfarin for these patients. Increasing evidence supports a target range of 2.0 to 3.0 for the INR. The risk for stroke rises steeply if the INR is , 2, and the risk for hemorrhage rises if it ...

Background Increasing numbers of children are being administered warfarin therapy as thromboprophylaxis. Warfarin has a narrow therapeutic window with a target international normalised ratio (INR) of 2-3.5, called the therapeutic range. The length of time a patients INR remains within the therapeutic range is calculated as time in the therapeutic rangeâ‡(tm). Risk for haemorrhage in children receiving warfarin is 0.5%/patient-year and minor bleeding 2.3%/patient-year, which increases exponentially for INRs >5.0. Practice among non-bleeding adults with INRs ≥5 and ≤9 is to withhold warfarin and allow the INR to return to the therapeutic range. Faster warfarin clearance is correlated with younger age. Methods and results The study objective was to determine the safety and effectiveness of a conservative approach for management of INRs >5 in children receiving warfarin. Children receiving warfarin with INRs ≥5 had warfarin withheld followed by a next day INR without vitamin ...
Background: Many cardiovascular diseases may require lifelong anticoagulation therapy. Warfarin is the most prescribed medication in this regard, however, it has serious side effects. Recently the new issue regarding to warfarin dosing is considered in which some single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) affecting cytochrome P450 system can impact on warfarin metabolism and dosing. Methods: 230 cardiovascular patients have participated in the study. The INR levels was 1.5 - 3.5 with a mean range of 2.8. The subjects were divided into two case and control groups. The rs2108622 SNP of the CYP4F2 gene and its effect on warfarin dosing in these patients was accessed. Results: The results of our study showed a correlation between age and warfarin dosage. The overall frequency of the CC and TT allele of rs2108622 was 53.1% and 18.6%. Daily average dose of warfarin in CC, CT and TT variants was 3.5 ± 1.6, 4.5 ± 2.1 and 5.3 ± 2.1 respectively. The daily warfarin dose in patients with CC allele was
The warfarin binding behaviour of a large tryptic fragment (residues 198-585 which comprise domains two and three) and of a large peptic fragment (residues 1-387 which comprise domains one and two) of human serum albumin has been studied by circular dichroism and equilibrium dialysis in order to locate and characterize ... read more the primary warfarin binding site. The induced ellipticity of the warfarin-peptic fragment complex turned out to be pH dependent. This pH dependence occurs in the region of the neutral-to-base transition of the albumin molecule. The induced ellipticity of the warfarin-tryptic fragment complex is pH independent. Difference CD-spectra showed that the peptic fragment and albumin have similar warfarin binding properties whereas the tryptic fragment has deviant warfarin binding properties. The equilibrium dialysis experiments showed that the affinity of warfarin to the peptic fragment and to albumin is practically the same whereas the affinity of warfarin to the tryptic ...
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
Background: Warfarin is used as an anti-coagulant in patients at risk of developing thrombosis. It has a narrow therapeutic index necessitating close monitoring of International Normalized Ratio (INR). According to a meta-analysis, patients were in therapeutic range only 63.6% of the time. This increases the risk of bleeding or thrombosis. Various retrospective and prospective studies have looked at supplementation with phytonadione in these patients to reduce the variability of INR showing an improvement in variability. Most of these studies have only been done in a small number of patients already on warfarin therapy. This study will focus on patients newly starting warfarin therapy.. Methods: This study is a prospective, randomized, controlled trial performed at James A. Haley Veterans Hospital (JAHVA). Patients who meet criteria and sign informed consent will receive either phytonadione with warfarin or warfarin alone. Based on a power calculation for 80%, a total of 370 patients will be ...

Most of these studies have only been done in a small number of patients already on warfarin therapy. This study will focus on patients newly starting warfarin therapy.. Methods: This study is a prospective, randomized, controlled trial performed at James A. Haley Veterans Hospital (JAHVA). Patients who meet criteria and sign informed consent will receive either phytonadione with warfarin or warfarin alone. Based on a power calculation for 80%, a total of 370 patients will be ...
Warfarin has been in clinical use for nearly 60 years, and in 2010 there were ,25 million prescriptions for warfarin in the United States. Although warfarin is highly efficacious, it has a narrow therapeutic window to achieve desired anticoagulation without excess risk of bleeding. Anticoagulation status is monitored with the International Normalized Ratio (INR), where the most common target INR is 2 to 3. Not only does warfarin exhibit a narrow therapeutic index, but there can be 10- to 20-fold differences in the warfarin dose required to achieve target INR. Thus, the early period after warfarin therapy initiation requires frequent INR monitoring to determine the proper dose for the patient, it is often associated with multiple dose adjustments, and many patients experience prolonged periods of over- or underanticoagulation while the appropriate dose is identified. These challenges lead to warfarin being a leading cause of emergency department visits and hospitalizations for an adverse drug ...
BACKGROUND: The role of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA [aspirin]) and warfarin in secondary prevention after acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is well established. However, there are sparse data comparing the presentation and outcomes of patients who present with ACS while on ASA and/or warfarin therapy and those on neither. METHODS: Using data from the Canadian Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE), we stratified 14,090 ACS patients into 4 groups according to prior use of antithrombotic therapies and compared in-hospital management and outcomes. RESULTS: Among 14,090 ACS patients, 7411 (52.6%) were not on prior ASA or warfarin therapy, 5724 (40.6%) were on ASA only, 593 (4.2%) were on warfarin only, and 362 (2.6%) were on both ASA and warfarin. ACS patients taking ASA and/or warfarin were older with more comorbidities than the patients on neither drug. Patients receiving prior warfarin only or ASA and warfarin were less likely to receive guideline-recommended therapies. Patients who were taking
Warfarin has been reported to interact with more than 100 drugs, including many antibiotics. Warfarin is a racemic mixture of S- and R-warfarin enantiomers. S-warfarin is considered to have several times more anticoagulant activity than R-warfarin. S-warfarin is primarily metabolized by CYP2C9, whereas Rwarfarin is metabolized by CYP1A2, CYP2C19, and CYP3A4. Thus, one would expect that drugs inhibiting CYP2C9, and therefore S-warfarin metabolism, would increase the concentration of warfarin and enhance its anticoagulant effect (Table). Other antibiotics have been reported to increase warfarin response. Some?such as moxalactam, cefoperazone, cefamandole, cefotetan, and cefmetazole?appear to inhibit the formation of clotting factors and indirectly increase the effect of warfarin. As with the antibiotics that are inhibitors of CYP2C9, there may be a reasonable mechanism for these purported interactions. For the majority of antibiotics associated with warfarin interactions, however, there is no ...

SPORTIF III compared ximelagatran, 36 mg twice daily, with therapeutic warfarin in patients with AF at moderate to high risk of thromboembolic outcomes. INR control in the warfarin group was similar to that in the community.1 The results, along with the recently reported SPORTIF V,2 showed that ximelagatran is at least as efficacious as warfarin and at least as safe for bleeding complications. See EBM notebook ( From a practical standpoint, ximelagatran is an easier drug to use than warfarin because it can be administered in a fixed dose regimen, without the need for laboratory monitoring of its anticoagulant effect to make dose adjustments, and does not appear to have drug and food related interactions that occur with warfarin. These advantages have the potential to greatly simplify the anticoagulant management of patients with AF. However, ximelagatran is potentially hepatotoxic (see table on web site).3,4,5 Most studies of long term ximelagatran ...
Warfarin, a vitamin K epoxide reductase inhibitor, was first approved as an oral anticoagulant medication in 1954 and was the only option for outpatient anticoagulation for decades. Clinical trials in the 1980s and 1990s demonstrated that warfarin was highly effective at preventing strokes related to AF.7-9 The combination of these trials demonstrated an impressive 62% reduction in the risk of stroke. Despite the development and proliferation of novel oral anticoagulant alternatives, warfarin use remains prevalent and complicates the management of hemorrhagic and non-hemorrhagic surgical emergencies. As recently as 2011, warfarin was one of the top 25 most commonly prescribed medications in the USA.10 Warfarin is Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for the management of relatively common medical problems: the prophylaxis and treatment of venous thromboembolism and the reduction of embolic risk associated with non-valvular atrial dysrhythmia, mechanical heart valves, and the sequelae of ...

Asking patients to discontinue these blood-thinning medications before any dental work is not a prudent thing to do, he stated. The implications of discontinuing these prescriptions are greater than any postoperative bleeding complications that we get.. While patients who are only on warfarin are at minimal risk, the researchers considered other variables in their study and noted an area of greater concern.. What we found was that individuals who were on several blood thinners, not just warfarin, were the ones who were at higher risk, Dr. Napenas said.. International normalized ratio. He and his colleagues used the CoaguChek system (Roche Diagnostics) to ascertain each patients international normalized ratio (INR), a commonly used metric when monitoring oral anticoagulant therapy and for warfarin dosage planning.

Anti-warfarin antiserum was prepared in rabbits by immunization with a synthesized warfarin antigen, 4-azo-warfarin human serum albumin, which possesses two enantiomorphic haptenic sites of warfarin on the molecule. The antiserum recognized both R- and S-warfarin to the same degree, 50% cross reactivities of racemic warfarin, respectively. One of the warfarin metabolites, racemic warfarin alcohol, showed 1% cross reactivity, and R- or S-warfarin alcohol have half the reactivity of the racemic alcohol. Rabbit plasma warfarin levels were determined by radioimmunoassay using this antiserum and racemic [14C]warfarin and by fluorometric assay after isolation by thin layer chromatography. After a single administration of warfarin (2 mg kg-1 orally or 500 microgram kg-1 i.v.), the plasma levels determined by both assay methods showed a good correlation (r = 0.97, P less than 0.001, Y = 1.04-0.09). The results show that the radioimmunoassay can determine total plasma warfarin without interference of ...

BACKGROUND: In the Randomised Evaluation of Long-Term Anticoagulation Therapy (RE-LY) trial, dabigatran reduced occurrence of both stroke and haemorrhage compared with warfarin in patients who had atrial fibrillation and were at increased risk of stroke. We aimed to assess the effects of dabigatran compared with warfarin in the subgroup of patients with previous stroke or transient ischaemic attack.. METHODS: In the RE-LY trial, 18 113 patients from 967 centres in 44 countries were randomly assigned to 110 mg or 150 mg dabigatran twice daily or to warfarin dose adjusted to international normalised ratio 2·0 to 3·0. Median follow-up was 2·0 years (IQR 1·14-2·86), and the primary outcome was stroke or systemic embolism. The primary safety outcome was major haemorrhage. Patients and investigators were aware of whether patients received warfarin or dabigatran, but not of dabigatran dose, and event adjudicators were masked to treatment. In a predefined analysis, we investigated the outcomes of ...
We searched our electronic database for all patients aged 18 years or above who developed first ICH in the presence of anticoagulation with warfarin for non-valvular AF (ICH-W group) from the three hospitals, and matched them with a comparison group (ICH-C group) without taking warfarin at a 1:1 ratio for age (±1 year), gender, and admission year. The comparison group comprised patients from the medical unit of PMH (principal study centre) who had a first episode of ICH without anticoagulation, regardless of any AF. Patients with isolated subdural, subarachnoid, or intraventricular haemorrhage were excluded. We retrieved and compared the data regarding neurological impairment and investigation findings, estimated the ICH volume on CT through the ABC/2 method, and calculated the ICH score.3 4 Hospital mortality and 6-month modified Rankin Scale score (mRS, 0-6) were selected as primary and secondary outcomes, respectively. We used independent sample t test and Mann-Whitney U test for univariate ...
From a sample of 84 referrals by the hospital to the pharmacy clinic, 51 patients belonged to GP practices using SystmOne. From this latter group, there was only one instance where hospital communications had not been scanned onto the electronic record by a GP practice. Nevertheless, in 25 cases (49%), warfarin had not been entered on the repeat template, possibly because the GP was not being asked to prescribe the drug. This meant that as details of warfarin use were consigned to less frequently accessed sections of the electronic record, the GP might easily overlook that anticoagulation had commenced. Information about the duration of warfarin treatment was invariably absent. There were 18 cases where patients had remained on aspirin unintentionally and two instances where the hospital had not indicated if it should stop. Overall, information about warfarin was missing, not readily accessed or incomplete in 82.4% of cases. As there was no hospital electronic link with non-SystmOne practices, ...

Objective: To determine whether very low doses of warfarin are useful in thrombosis prophylaxis in patients with central venous catheters.. Design: Patients at risk for thrombosis associated with chronic indwelling central venous catheters were prospectively and randomly assigned to receive or not to receive 1 mg of warfarin, beginning 3 days before catheter insertion and continuing for 90 days. Subclavian, innominate, and superior vena cava venograms were done at onset of thrombosis symptoms or after 90 days in the study.. Results: One hundred twenty-one patients entered the study, and 82 patients completed the study. Of 42 patients completing the study while receiving warfarin, 4 had venogram-proven thrombosis. All 4 had symptoms from thrombosis. Of 40 patients completing the study while not receiving warfarin, 15 had venogram-proven thrombosis, and 10 had symptoms from thrombosis (P , 0.001). There were no measurable changes in the coagulation values assayed due to this warfarin dose, except ...
PURPOSE: To evaluate effectiveness and safety of rivaroxaban versus warfarin or dabigatran etexilate in a prospective cohort of routine care non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) patients during February 2012 to August 2014.. METHODS: We identified in nationwide health registries a cohort of AF patients who were new-users of rivaroxaban 15 mg (R15) or 20 mg (R20); dabigatran 110 mg (D110) or 150 mg (D150); or warfarin. Propensity-adjusted Cox regression was used to compare outcome rates in four settings: R15 vs. warfarin; R15 vs. D110; R20 vs. warfarin; and R20 vs. D150.. RESULTS: Rivaroxaban users (R15: n = 776; R20: n = 1629) were older and with more comorbidities than warfarin (n = 11 045) and dabigatran users (D110: n = 3588; D150: n = 5320). Rivaroxaban 15-mg users had the overall highest crude mortality rate. After propensity adjustment, rivaroxaban had lower stroke rates vs. warfarin (R15: hazard ratio [HR] 0.46, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.26-0.82; R20 HR: 0.72, 95%CI: ...
Warfarin is an oral anticoagulant used for prevention of thromboembolism in children. Its dosing is difficult due to the narrow therapeutic index & individual variability in effective dosage. Genetic polymorphism in 2 enzymes involved in warfarin metabolism, vitamin K epoxide reductase (VKORC) & cytochrome P450 isoenzyme 2C9 (CYP2C9), have been associated with lower dose requirements in adults.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate dabigatran dual therapy versus warfarin triple therapy in patients with or without diabetes mellitus in the RE-DUAL PCI (Randomized Evaluation of Dual Antithrombotic Therapy With Dabigatran Versus Triple Therapy With Warfarin in Patients With Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) trial.. BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether dual therapy is as safe and efficacious as triple therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation with diabetes following percutaneous coronary intervention.. METHODS: In RE-DUAL PCI, 2,725 patients with atrial fibrillation (993 with diabetes) who had undergone PCI were assigned to warfarin triple therapy (warfarin, clopidogrel or ticagrelor, and aspirin) or dabigatran dual therapy (dabigatran 110 mg or 150 mg twice daily and clopidogrel or ticagrelor). Median follow-up was 13 months. The primary outcome was the composite of major bleeding or clinically relevant nonmajor bleeding, and the ...
Despite its effectiveness, treatment with warfarin has several shortcomings. Many commonly used medications interact with warfarin, as do some foods (particularly fresh plant-based foods containing vitamin K) and its activity has to be monitored by blood testing for the international normalized ratio (INR) to ensure an adequate yet safe dose is taken.[2] A high INR predisposes to a high risk of bleeding, while an INR below the therapeutic target indicates that the dose of warfarin is insufficient to protect against thromboembolic events.. Warfarin and related 4-hydroxycoumarin-containing molecules decrease blood coagulation by inhibiting vitamin K epoxide reductase, an enzyme that recycles oxidized vitamin K to its reduced form after it has participated in the carboxylation of several blood coagulation proteins, mainly prothrombin and factor VII. For this reason, drugs in this class are also referred to as vitamin K antagonists.[2] When administered, these drugs do not anticoagulate blood ...

A new study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, compared the side effects of Pradaxa use and Warfarin. Both medications are considered anticoagulants, or blood thinners, and are typically prescribed to treat non-valvular atrial fibrillation, a condition in which the heart does not beat properly.. The purpose of the study was to determine if Pradaxa could be used as a blood thinning medication for patients diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. About 290 people were involved in the study, half of whom received Pradaxa while the other half received warfarin.. The researchers from the University of Kansas Hospital and Medical Center state that the group of Pradaxa users faced a higher risk for experiencing adverse side effects including bleeding problems, stroke, and mini strokes than warfarin users. According to the study Pradaxa users had a 16% higher risk. Pradaxa is included in a class of drugs referred to as direct thrombin inhibitors which work by preventing the ...
Anticoagulants are drugs used to prevent the formation of blood clots, reducing the risk of stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. Heparin and warfarin are used to inhibit the formation and growth of existing thrombi, with the former used for acute anticoagulation while the latter is used for long-term anticoagulation.[2] The mechanism of action of heparin and warfarin are different as they work on different pathways of the coagulation cascade.[6] Heparin works by binding to and activating the enzyme inhibitor antithrombin III, an enzyme that acts by inactivating thrombin and factor Xa.[6] In contrast, warfarin works by inhibiting vitamin K epoxide reductase, an enzyme needed to synthesize vitamin K dependent clotting factors II, VII, IX, and X.[6][7] Bleeding time with heparin and warfarin therapy can be measured with the partial thromboplastin time (PTT) and prothrombin time (PT), respectively.[7]. Once clots have formed, other drugs can be used to promote thrombolysis or clot breakdown. ...
Purpose: This study describes the comparative safety and efficacy of direct acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs) relative to warfarin following liver transplantation, at a large academic transplant center.. *Methods: This was a single-center, retrospective cohort review of adult liver transplant recipients prescribed either a DOAC or warfarin between January 2014 and January 2018. Patients were excluded if they had active cancer or discontinued anticoagulation therapy prior to 60 days for a reason other than acute bleeding or thrombosis. Patients receiving DOACs were matched with warfarin treated controls using an exact greedy matching algorithm based upon the following clinical parameters: donor type, age, history of hepatocellular carcinoma, indication for anticoagulation, HAS-BLED score, timing of anticoagulation, and duration of anticoagulation. Matched patients were then followed from the time of anticoagulation initiation, until treatment discontinuation or study conclusion. The primary ...
Warfarin is a blood-thinning drug that functions by inhibiting vitamin K-dependent clotting factors. Warfarin is prescribed by doctors for people with various conditions, such as atrial fibrillation, artificial heart valves, a history of serious blood clots, clotting disorders (hypercoagulability), and placement of indwelling catheters or ports. Usually, blood tests must be done regularly to evaluate the extent of blood thinning, using a test for prothrombin time (PT) or the international normalized ratio (INR). Vitamin K can decrease the blood-thinning effects of warfarin and will therefore lower the PT or INR value. This may increase the risk of clotting. Therefore, people taking warfarin are usually warned to avoid foods with high vitamin K content (such as green leafy vegetables) and to avoid vitamin K supplements.

Heparin and warfarin are used to inhibit the formation and growth of existing thrombi, with the former used for acute anticoagulation while the latter is used for long-term anticoagulation.[2] The mechanism of action of heparin and warfarin are different as they work on different pathways of the coagulation cascade.[5] Heparin works by binding to and activating the enzyme inhibitor antithrombin III, an enzyme that acts by inactivating thrombin and factor Xa.[5] In contrast, warfarin works by inhibiting vitamin K epoxide reductase, an enzyme needed to synthesize vitamin K dependent clotting factors II, VII, IX, and X.[5][6] Bleeding time with heparin and warfarin therapy can be measured with the partial thromboplastin time (PTT) and prothrombin time (PT), respectively.[6] Some treatments have been derived from bacteria. One drug is streptokinase, which is an enzyme secreted by several streptococcal ...

AU - Shah, Nilay D. AU - Nath, Karl A. AU - Noseworthy, Peter. PY - 2017/11/28. Y1 - 2017/11/28. N2 - Background Lifelong oral anticoagulation, either with warfarin or a non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant (NOAC), is indicated for stroke prevention in most patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Emerging evidence suggests that NOACs may be associated with better renal outcomes than warfarin. Objectives This study aimed to compare 4 oral anticoagulant agents (apixaban, dabigatran, rivaroxaban, and warfarin) for their effects on 4 renal outcomes: ≥30% decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), doubling of the serum creatinine level, acute kidney injury (AKI), and kidney failure. Methods Using a large U.S. administrative database linked to laboratory results, the authors identified 9,769 patients ...
Warfarin sodium (CAS 129-06-6) Industry Market Share, Supply and Consumption 2016 to 2021 Global and Chinese Market Research Report
Because conventional warfarin therapy (a target International Normalized Ratio [INR] of 2.0 to 3.0) has been shown to virtually eliminate the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism, interest has developed in attempting low-intensity anticoagulation. The latter technique still may be effective in preventing blood clots but may decrease the risk of serious bleeding that sometimes occurs with standard warfarin administration. Kearon and colleagues designed a trial of low-intensity versus conventional-intensity anticoagulation in patients with a history of deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.. The investigators screened 1,455 consecutive patients with unprovoked venous thromboembolism and enrolled 738 patients in the study. The most common causes for exclusion were declined consent, an additional indication for warfarin use beyond prophylaxis of recurrent blood clots (e.g., atrial fibrillation), or a life expectancy of less than two years. All patients had completed at least three months ...
Thesis, English, Effect of Clopidogrel and or Aspirin versus Warfarin on Postoperative Bleeding after Tooth Extractions for Ali Emad Mahmoud Mahmoud
This post-hoc analysis of the ROCKET AF study details the clinical characteristics associated with ICH events in patients treated with either warfarin or rivaroxaban for stroke prevention in AF. This study describes a new scoring system (PANWARDS) for prediction of ICH risk. This new scoring system adds to the currently available scoring systems for predicting overall major bleeding risk (e.g., HAS-BLED) and ischemic stroke risk (e.g., CHA2DS2-VASc). Although not yet validated in patients taking other oral anticoagulants, such as dabigatran and apixaban, the new scoring system is applicable to a large number of patients treated with either warfarin or rivaroxaban for stroke prevention in AF. However, usability of the scoring system is limited due to the continuous nature of the variables, which limits a providers ability to recall them from memory or to apply the scoring system without a reference tool. ...
Adherence to oral anticoagulant therapy in secondary stroke prevention – impact of the novel oral anticoagulants Sebastian Luger,1 Carina Hohmann,2 Daniela Niemann,1 Peter Kraft,3 Ignaz Gunreben,3 Tobias Neumann-Haefelin,2 Christoph Kleinschnitz,3 Helmuth Steinmetz,1 Christian Foerch,1 Waltraud Pfeilschifter1 1Department of Neurology, University Hospital Frankfurt, Frankfurt am Main, 2Department of Neurology, Klinikum Fulda gAG, Fulda, 3Department of Neurology, University Hospital Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany Background: Oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT) potently prevents strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation. Vitamin K antagonists (VKA) have been the standard of care for long-term OAT for decades, but non-VKA oral anticoagulants (NOAC) have recently been approved for this indication, and raised many questions, among them their influence on medication adherence. We assessed adherence to VKA and NOAC in secondary stroke prevention. Methods: All patients treated from October 2011 to
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with inflammatory and hypercoagulability state. Previous studies evaluated the safety and efficacy of dabigatran and warfarin in prevention of thrombothic complications. This study was intended to assess the influence of these drugs on hemostatic and inflammatory markers among patient underwent pulmonary vein ablation. A total of 100 patients with AF who underwent catheter ablation were randomized to treatment with dabigatran (D) 110 mg twice daily or warfarin (W) adjusted to an international normalized ratio (INR) of 2.0 to 3.0 for 3 months after ablation procedure. C - reactive protein (CRP), D-dimer, prothrombin fragment F1 + 2 (F1 + 2), were measured at baseline before ablation procedures, after 30 days and after 90 days of treatment. After 3 months, the D-dimer was 164.9 ± 48.9 in Dabigatran and 197.2 ± 58.6 in warfarin group, F1 + 2 was 0.4 ± 0.2 in dabigatran and 0.8 ± 0.2 in warfarin group and CRP level was 1.8 ± 1.6 in Dabigatran and 5.1 ± 5 in
Results There were eight new patients commenced on warfarin during the study period; seven postsurgery and one post pulmonary embolism. Documentation in the medical notes was variable; no documented reason why warfarin started or that verbal or written information given to patient/parents, the majority of loading doses used were documented and all of the INR results post surgery was detailed.. As regards loading and target ranges; less than half of patients complied with the day 2-7 loading regimen protocol during the study period but at discharge seven out of the eight patients were in target range. The post discharge INR results were 46% within range, only one patient had an INR of greater than five and none had an INR greater than 8.. ...
Left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) with the Watchman device prevents stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AFib) comparable to warfarin, with reduced major bleeding and mortality, according to the five-year results of the PREVAIL and PROTECT-AF trials, presented at TCT 2017 and simultaneously published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.. Vivek Y. Reddy, MD, et al., reported the final, five-year results of PREVAIL, both alone and as part of a patient-level meta-analysis with PROTECT-AF five-year data. In the two trials combined, 1,114 patients with nonvalvular AFib were randomized to LAAC with the Watchman device (n = 732) or warfarin (n = 382) for 4,343 patient-years. The first primary efficacy endpoint in PREVAIL was the same as the primary endpoint in PROTECT-AF - the composite of stroke, systemic embolism or cardiovascular/unexplained death. In PREVAIL, the second primary efficacy endpoint was the composite of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism after ...
hospitalizations, the excess risk attributable to anticoagulant therapy remained significant after the multivariate adjustment [IRR = 3.94 CI, 95% CI (1.06-14.69), p=0.041]. Finally, there was also a tendency to an increased risk of repeated hospitalizations of ischemic cause in anticoagulated patients [IRR = 5.80, 95% CI (0.86-39.0), p=0.071].. Anticoagulation and recurrent bleeding. There was a tendency of a higher frequency of total hemorrhages and also major hemorrhages in anticoagulated patients [1.93 vs 1.11 (p=0.113) and 1.05 vs 0.32 (p=0.051)]. After multivariate adjustment, we observed a tendency toward an increased risk of recurrent bleeding in the anticoagulated patients [IRR = 4.43, 95% CI (0.94-20.81), p=0.059]. Regarding major bleeding, although the differences were ostensible, these did not become statistically significant [IRR= P13.38, 95% CI (0.47-382.68), p,0.129)]..

Having an acute upper respiratory tract infection -- with or without treatment with an antibiotic -- may be associated with excessive anticoagulation in patients taking warfarin, a retrospective study
A retrospective analysis conducted by Li et al11 included 144 anticoagulated patients attending the ED with head injury. Of these patients, 134 (93%) were described as receiving their injury from a simple fall. This study included patients taking warfarin who had incurred head injury and subsequently had CT head scan. Patients excluded were those with new neurology, altered mentation or who were deemed high or moderate risk. This group found the incidence of intracranial haemorrhage in their study to be 6.2% (9/144), with six parenchymal haemorrhages, two subdural haematomas and a single subarachnoid haemorrhage being described. The authors of this study concluded that significant numbers of warfarinised patients develop intracranial pathology with even minor head injury. The authors postulate that this subset of patients should be considered at moderate risk and go on to recommend intracranial imaging for all warfarinised head injury patients during emergency assessment, regardless of ...
Its important to have a healthy, balanced diet that includes lots of fruit and vegetables if youre taking anticoagulants, but you should avoid making frequent changes to the amount of green vegetables you eat and cranberry juice you drink if youre taking warfarin.. Cranberry juice and some green vegetables, such as broccoli, kale and spinach, contain a lot of vitamin K, which can reduce the effect of your medication. You can still include these in your diet while taking warfarin, as the clinic will adjust your dose accordingly, but its important to be consistent in the amount you consume. You should also seek advice before taking supplements containing vitamin K.. The effect of warfarin is also affected by alcohol. If youre taking warfarin, dont drink more than one or two alcoholic drinks a day and never binge drink. These food and drink restrictions dont usually apply if youre taking apixaban, dabigatran and rivaroxaban, but you should check with your GP, anticoagulant clinic or ...
Background: The objective of this article is to summarize the published literature concerning the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of oral anticoagulant drugs that are currently available for clinical use and other aspects related to their management.. Methods: We carried out a standard review of published articles focusing on the laboratory and clinical characteristics of the vitamin K antagonists; the direct thrombin inhibitor, dabigatrán etexilate; and the direct factor Xa inhibitor, rivaroxaban.. Results: The antithrombotic effect of each oral anticoagulant drug, the interactions, and the monitoring of anticoagulation intensity are described in detail and discussed without providing specific recommendations. Moreover, we describe and discuss the clinical applications and optimal dosages of oral anticoagulant therapies, practical issues related to their initiation and monitoring, adverse events such as bleeding and other potential side effects, and available strategies for ...
This study investigated comparison of bleeding risk among elderly patients and overall non-valvular atrial fibrillation patients treated with apixaban,
In patients on warfarin treatment, warfarin withdrawal and switch to heparin use is urgently recommended, despite a lack of clear-cut prospective clinical evidence. However, the biological plausibility that vitamin K antagonism favours vascular calcification is relevant and vitamin K supplementation may be valuable. Basile et al. reported on successful hyperbaric oxygen therapy in a small number of calciphylaxis patients. This approach is based on the attempt to improve wound healing in ischemic tissues. In this study, affected areas were exposed to 100% oxygen at 2.5-atmospheres pressure in a closed chamber for 90 minutes per session in order to increase local oxygen pressure in the ulcerated and necrotic areas (number of session per patient ranged between 20 and 108). 8 out of 11 patients showed effective healing of ulcerations ...
Oral anticoagulants are both one of the most commonly prescribed classes of medication and one associated with the high risk of major complications. This session will focus on the optimal management of this class of medication. It will include discussions of clinically important drug interactions with oral anticoagulants, the role of specialized anticoagulation services, and tips for using vitamin K antagonists.|/p| |p|Dr. Vittorio Pengo will discuss the exclusive use of warfarin treatment in some patient categories despite its decrease after the entry of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). The beginning of treatment is of fundamental importance as thrombotic and hemorrhagic complications occur soon after starting treatment as a consequence of poor maintenance of international normalized ratio in the therapeutic range. Dr. Pengo will discuss how to treat an excess or a deficit of anticoagulation after stabilization of treatment, and how to handle bridging therapy in the occasion of surgery or invasive

The mean Anti-Clot Burden and Benefits and SWAN Score was 93% (56/60) and 83% (24.8/30) respectively reflecting high satisfaction with anti-Xa direct oral anticoagulants. 120 patients stated preference for anti-Xa direct oral anticoagulants over warfarin. Leading perceptions driving this was the reduction in frequency of medical contact and fewer bleeding side effects. Thirteen patients (10.3%) experienced an adverse event after the anti-Xa direct oral anticoagulant switch (majority were non-major bleeding) but most remained on anti-Xa direct oral anticoagulant treatment after management options were implemented with continued high satisfaction scores.. ...
Warfarin and its counterparts are commonly prescribed prescription medications today. Warfarin is a blood thinner, and is used primarily to prevent blood clots in patients with cardiovascular disease, or who are otherwise at a higher than average risk of stroke or heart attack.. Warfarin prevents clots from forming or from growing larger by stopping the formation of substances that cause clots. Because warfarin thins your blood, its important to stop taking it before any surgical procedures. Check with your doctor regarding his recommendations before your surgery.. Warfarins side effects include. o headache. o upset stomach. o diarrhea. o fever. o skin rash. Recently, there has been discussion that some beverages may inhibit the blood thinning properties of warfarin. The beverages in question include cranberry juice, grape juice and tea. The theory was that the beverages inhibited the human enzyme upon which warfarin works to prevent the formation of clots. This led patients to wonder if it ...

Warfarin has been the established oral anticoagulant for the last 50 years, being effective in the prevention and treatment of venous and arterial thromboembolic disorders. However, the frequent requirement for INR monitoring, multiple drug and food interactions have fuelled the need for development of new oral anticoagulants. Dabigatran is the first of a series of new oral anticoagulants that are emerging as the successors to warfarin. This new group of anticoagulants is rapidly gaining FDA and NICE approval and has proven non-inferiority to warfarin and viable alternatives to warfarin in the coming years. Given the obvious impact of this on dental treatment in the primary care and hospital setting this article aims to increase familiarisation with this new medicine group.

If simvastatin or lovastatin are combined with dabigatran-brand name Pradaxa, an anti-clotting drug-hemorrhage risk increases.. A study published today in the Canadian Medical Association Journal found that within a cohort of almost 46,000 patients treated with dabigatran, the use of simvastatin or lovastatin, relative to other statins, increased the risk of a major hemorrhage by approximately 42 percent.*. Administrative data supported the authors hypothesis that these two commonly-prescribed, cholesterol-lowering statins would "increase the amount of dabigatran absorbed by the body," reads the St. Michaels Hospital press release, "something other statins would not be expected to do." A higher concentration of dabigatran, in turn, would result in higher bleeding risk..

(
  • A small, randomized trial ( RESPECT-CVT ) showed no significant difference in efficacy and safety outcomes between dabigatran and warfarin in patients with cerebral venous thrombosis, but with only 120 patients, this trial was too small for definite answers to this question. (
  • The more recent medications are Pradaxa (dabigatran), Xarelto (rivaroxaban), Eliquis (apixaban), and most just recently Savaysa (edoxaban)- which work by avoiding pooled blood in the heart from clotting Unlike warfarin, the more recent drugs are much safer and much easier for clients to utilize. (

  • But Go didn't agree with the conclusion that a stable TTR should not necessarily dissuade physicians from switching a patient from warfarin to a DOAC. (
  • The mean age of the patients included was 44.8 years, 64.7% were women, 33% received DOAC only, 51.8% received warfarin only, and 15.1% received both treatments at different times. (
  • We examined patients with an incident diagnosis for AF and initiated warfarin or DOAC treatment between 2012 and 2015. (
  • She noted that although randomized trials and current guidelines indicate that DOACs are a preferred alternative to warfarin for the treatment of patients with venous thromboembolism, there are limited data on their use in patients with CVT. (
  • Individuals develop warfarin sensitivity because a lower warfarin dose is needed to inhibit the VKORC1 enzyme, as there is less functional enzyme that needs to be suppressed. (
  • This reduction in warfarin binding causes incomplete warfarin resistance and results in a higher dose of warfarin needed to inhibit the VKORC1 enzyme and stop the clotting process. (
  • They included one episode of cardiac tamponade and one myocardial infarction in the heparin-bridging group and one stroke and one transient ischaemic attack in the warfarin group. (
  • Drugs, dietary changes, and other factors affect INR levels achieved with warfarin sodium therapy. (

  • Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT): Initial therapy with warfarin sodium in HIT has resulted in cases of amputation and death. (
  • The current data, write Winkelmayer and Turakhia, "support the use and continuation of warfarin therapy among patients with CKD with excellent INR control. (
  • This is why patients are closely monitored especially when they begin warfarin therapy. (
  • In the BRUISE-CONTROL study, 681 patients taking warfarin and requiring device implantation were randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to continued warfarin treatment or to bridging therapy with heparin. (
  • The trial was terminated early after a prespecified interim analysis, which strongly favoured continuation of warfarin therapy. (
  • In this large multi-center prospective study, as compared with bridging therapy with heparin, a strategy of continued warfarin treatment at the time of pacemaker or ICD implantation significantly reduced the incidence of pocket haematomas. (

  • ANSWER: If possible, warfarin therapy should be avoided during pregnancy. (
  • If warfarin therapy is essential, it should be avoided at least during the first trimester (because of teratogenicity) and from about 2 to 4 weeks before delivery to reduce risk of hemorrhagic complications. (
  • Liver injury due to warfarin therapy is rare, but clinically apparent acute liver injury attributable to it has been reported. (
  • The aim of warfarin therapy is to decrease the blood's tendency to clot, but not stop it clotting completely. (
  • Patient satisfaction toward the counseling service was rated as good in the following areas: general satisfaction, interpersonal manner of pharmacist providing counseling, communication, and accessibility to the service.Conclusion: Pharmacist counseling through verbal and written reinforcement could improve patients' knowledge of warfarin therapy, and may enable the patients to identify complications related to the therapy, particularly minor bleedings.

  • Seven clinical trials were analyzed, including 3 studies using warfarin and 4 surrogate drugs. (
  • Randomized clinical trials and surrogate markers found no evidence to support the interaction between cranberry juice and warfarin. (
  • Many patients with good INR control on warfarin won't maintain a high time in therapeutic range (TTR) even a year later, making past TTR a poor predictor of clinical outcomes in patients with A-fib, a new study shows. (
  • These results support clinical equipoise regarding the use of warfarin in hemodialysis patients and underscore the need for randomized trials to fill this evidence gap. (
  • The need for a TMDD pharmacokinetic model and the demonstration of genotyped-dependent drug interactions may explain the extensive variability in dose-response relationships that are seen in the clinical dose adjustments of warfarin. (

(
  • Although warfarin is indicated to prevent ischemic strokes in most patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), evidence supporting its use in hemodialysis patients is limited. (
  • Patients with atrial fibrillation seem to be at increased risk for ischemic stroke when starting warfarin prophylaxis, according to a case-control study in the European Heart Journal . (
  • Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. (
  • The study consisted of interviews with 100 atrial fibrillation patients to determine their understanding of potential interactions between supplements and medications such as Warfarin. (
  • You are taking blood thinning drugs (e.g. warfarin, aspirin, Clopidogrel). (
  • Avoid using herbs to treat high platelet counts if you take anti-clotting medications, such as warfarin or clopidogrel. (
  • Certain common changes (polymorphisms) in the CYP2C9 and VKORC1 genes account for most of the variation in warfarin metabolism due to genetic factors. (
  • Several CYP2C9 gene polymorphisms decrease the activity of the CYP2C9 enzyme and slow the body's metabolism of warfarin. (
  • While changes in specific genes, particularly CYP2C9 and VKORC1 , affect how the body reacts to warfarin, many other factors, including sex, age, weight, diet, and other medications, also play a role in the body's interaction with this drug. (
  • Azzam H, Elwakeel H, Awad I, El-Farahaty R, El-Gilany AH, El-Sharawy S. VKORC1 and CYP2C9 genotypes in Egyptian patients with warfarin resistance. (
  • Polymorphisms of CYP2C9, VKORC1, MDR1, APOE and UGT1A1 genes and the therapeutic warfarin dose in Brazilian patients with thrombosis: a prospective cohort study. (
  • Variability to warfarin response has been linked to mutations in two genes: CYP2C9 and VKORC1. (
  • Further, his group performed a study with cranberry juice and flurbiprofen (which is metabolized by the same enzyme that plays a major role in warfarin metabolism, the hepatic CYP2C9 enzyme) and found no effect of cranberry juice on the metabolism of this medication. (
  • The adequate warfarin dosage for a patient is determined by three genes: VKORC1, CYP2C9, and CYP4F2. (
  • What is known and Objectives: Testing for cytochrome P450‐2C9 (CYP2C9) and vitamin K epoxide reductase complex subunit 1 (VKORC1) variant alleles is recommended by the FDA for dosing of warfarin. (
  • We therefore studied the impact of genetic polymorphisms of CYP2C9 and VKORC1 on warfarin dose requirement in Malaysia. (
  • Effect of genetic variants, especially CYP2C9 and VKORC1, on the pharmacology of warfarin. (
  • This study showed that in the heart valve replacement patients considering VKORC1 and CYP2C9 polymorphisms beside demographic characteristics such as age will be helpful in pre-treatment dosing of warfarin which in turn reduces the complications associated with inappropriate warFarin dosing. (
  • CL f of 4'- 8- and 10-OH-S-warfarin increase in the presence of rifampin: 260%, 127% and 355%), which potentially explains the CYP2C9 genotype-dependent DDIs exhibited by S-warfarin, when warfarin is administrated together with fluconazole or rifampin. (
  • Additionally, for subjects with CYP2C9 *2 and *3 variants, a model-based analysis of warfarin metabolite profiles in subjects with various CYP2C9 genotypes demonstrates CYP2C9 mediated elimination is less important and non-CYP2C9 mediated elimination is more important, compared with subjects without these variants. (
  • To our knowledge, this is so far one of the most comprehensive population-based PK analyses of warfarin metabolites in subjects with various CYP2C9 genotypes under different co-medications. (
  • As an example, warfarin is the most cited therapeutic in relation to the genes CYP2C9 and VKORC1 . (
  • The CYP2C9 and VKORC1 genes play a key role in the metabolism of warfarin. (
  • Many studies have found evidence that variants in CYP2C9 and VKORC1 can impact the efficacy of warfarin in individual patients. (
  • Certain VKORC1 gene polymorphisms lead to the formation of a VKORC1 enzyme with a decreased ability to bind to warfarin. (
  • Warfarin dose/week was not influenced by each of the MDR1 C3435T, EPHX1 H139R, and PZ A-13G gene polymorphisms when examined separately, but when these single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were combined, MDR 1 TT/EPHX1 RH,RR/PZ AA subjects showed statistically significant increase in warfarindose/week. (
  • Polymorphisms in other genes, some of which have not been identified, have a smaller effect on warfarin metabolism. (
  • There is a need to study genotype frequency distribution and their effect on warfarin dose variability among different populations due to diversity in outcome, and the need for exploration of more genetic and nongenetic factors in Pakistani population is stressed. (
  • Warfarin is a commonly used blood thinner to treat and prevent blood clots. (
  • Warfarin is an anti-coagulant that is commonly used to prevent blood clots and embolism. (
  • Warfarin is a commonly prescribed drug used to prevent blood clots from forming and given to people with certain types of irregular heartbeat, those with prosthetic heart valves, and those who have suffered a heart attack. (
  • It is important to take the right dose of warfarin because too much can increase the risk of bleeding and too little can increase the risk of blood clots. (
  • The event rate for stroke and systemic embolism in the warfarin group was 1.5% per year. (
  • In multivariate analysis, those who went on warfarin, compared with the rest, showed a significantly reduced hazard ratio for the composite of death, MI readmission, or ischemic stroke at one year, independently of eGFR. (
  • This study suggests that optimally prescribed NOACs are associated with a lower risk of fatal, disabling or non-disabling stroke compared to warfarin," Canavan and colleagues wrote. (
  • Further study is required to identify if this reduction in stroke severity in NOACs compared to warfarin is seen in ischemic stroke populations. (
  • In 4 of the trials, NOACs were evaluated how they are usually prescribed, with acute stroke reported in 1403 (1.86%) participants in total, of which 787 (1.04%) were in the NOAC group and 616 (0.82%) in the warfarin group. (
  • In the warfarin group, 367 (0.49%) experienced fatal or disabling, 249 (0.33%) had non-disabling stroke. (
  • Although we speculated that NOACs may have a lesser effect on severe stroke, compared to warfarin, our findings refuted our hypothesis," Canavan and colleagues noted. (
  • In hemodialysis patients with incident AF, warfarin use was marginally associated with reduced risk of ischemic stroke, and there was a signal toward reduced mortality in as-treated analyses. (
  • The study was undertaken after trials of both apixaban and rivaroxaban noted increased stroke risks among patients transitioning to open-label warfarin. (
  • However, the warfarin group had half the stroke risk after 30 days. (
  • However, for patients at risk for stroke in AFib, Eliquis is the only NOAC that is better than warfarin in the prevention of stroke and results in fewer bleeding complications. (

  • You are likely to have been prescribed Warfarin or Sinthrome to help reduce the risk of harmful blood clots forming in your blood vessels. (
  • The aim is to give just the right amount of Warfarin, so the blood takes longer to clot but does not stop clotting altogether. (
  • Your Warfarin treatment will be monitored by having regular blood tests called an INR. (
  • Dose advice provided is based on the results of patient's latest INR blood test and it is important that the advised dose of Warfarin is followed. (

  • Similarly, the blood-clotting drug warfarin seems to relieve symptoms of schizophrenia. (
  • For many people, using warfarin can be difficult because of the need for frequent tests to see if the blood is clotting properly, and having to adjust the dose of the drug if it is not. (

  • Withholding 1 or more doses of warfarin is usually sufficient if INR is excessively elevated or if minor bleeding occurs. (
  • Many people with warfarin sensitivity take longer than normal to break down (metabolize) warfarin. (
  • Other people with warfarin sensitivity do not need as much drug to prevent clots because their clot-forming process is naturally slower than average and can be stopped by low warfarin doses. (
  • If people with warfarin sensitivity take the average dose (or more) of warfarin, they are at risk of an overdose, which can cause abnormal bleeding in the brain, gastrointestinal tract, or other tissues, and may lead to serious health problems or death. (
  • Understand best practices for safe discharge of patients on warfarin. (
  • The excessively high INR and elevated bleeding risk in this case do, however, highlight several important aspects of safely discharging patients on warfarin. (
  • You're at greatest risk of bleeding in the first few weeks of starting treatment with warfarin and when you're unwell. (
  • In addition, the effectiveness of Warfarin is impacted by other drugs - particularly antifungals, barbiturates and beta blockers which all decrease the drugs effectiveness. (

  • The low dose is almost inferior to warfarin and has a very favorable bleeding rate. (
  • Bleeding is the main side effect associated with warfarin, as it slows down the blood's normal clotting ability. (
  • Those employing warfarin appeared more likely to be admitted with intracranial hemorrhage. (
  • In the context of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), prior meta‐analysis has suggested that NOAC anticoagulation can lower the risk of compared to warfarin. (
  • Of note, his international normalized ratio (INR) was 2.4 at the time of discharge so he was appropriately anticoagulated on the warfarin. (
