  • Prothrombin Complex Concentrate for Major Bleeding on Factor Xa Inhibitors: A Prospective Cohort Study
  • 2018

    • Oral factor Xa inhibitors are increasingly used for anticoagulation, but there is no approved reversal agent. Prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) for the management of Xa-inhibitor–associated bleeding has been described in small case series and one cohort study. Patients on apixaban or rivaroxaban, suffering a major bleed, were treated at nine Canadian hospitals as per existing hospital protocol with a fixed dose of PCC 2,000 units and subsequently recruited for a 30-day follow-up. The treating physician evaluated the haemostatic effectiveness as observed during the first day as good, moderate or poor/none, using an assessment guide. Safety outcomes were thromboembolism or death. We recruited 66 patients with major bleeding who were treated with PCC and who were receiving rivaroxaban (56%) or apixaban (44%). The effectiveness was assessed as good in 65% (95% confidence interval [CI], 53–77), moderate in 20% (95% CI, 10–30) and poor/none in 15% (95% CI, 6–24). For the 36 patients with intracranial haemorrhage, the corresponding ratings were 67, 17 and 17%, and for 16 patients with gastrointestinal bleeding they were 69, 12 and 19%, respectively. There were nine deaths (14%) by 30 days, and five (8%) major thromboembolic events. In a post hoc analysis, according to International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis criteria, reversal was effective in 68% and ineffective in 32%. For major bleeding associated with oral Xa inhibitors, PCC may have a beneficial effect. The risk of thromboembolism after reversal of anticoagulation in patients with a prothrombotic background has to be taken into account.

  • Ximelagatran for the secondary prevention of venous thromboembolism: a complementary follow-up analysis of the THRIVE III study
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Thromb Haemost. - 0340-6245. ; 94:4, s. 820-4
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In the randomized, double-blind THRIVE III trial, the oral direct thrombin inhibitor ximelagatran (24 mg twice daily) significantly reduced the incidence of recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) versus placebo over 18 months or until premature study drug discontinuation. A complementary follow-up analysis (intention-to-treat) was conducted post-study to evaluate the cumulative risks of locally-confirmed recurrent VTE and death (Kaplan-Meier procedure) over the full 18-month study period, regardless of whether patients discontinued study drug prematurely. Hazard ratios (HRs) between treatments were estimated using Cox proportional hazard modeling. Of 612 and 611 patients receiving ximelagatran and placebo, respectively, 149 and 181 discontinued treatment prematurely. Of these discontinuations, further information could not be collected for 14 and 13 patients in the ximelagatran and placebo groups, respectively; among the remaining patients, four VTE events and four deaths occurred in the ximelagatran group, and one VTE event and five deaths occurred in the placebo group. The resulting cumulative risks of VTE (3.2% vs. 12.7%; HR 0.21; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.12, 0.36; P < 0.0001) and pulmonary embolism (0.8% vs. 5.2%; HR 0.13; 95% CI 0.04, 0.36; P < 0.0001) were significantly lower in the ximelagatran than in the placebo group over 18 months. Death from any cause over 18 months occurred in 10 and 12 patients, respectively (HR 0.83;95% CI 0.36, 1.93; P = 0.7). This complementary follow-up analysis confirms the benefit of oral ximelagatran 24 mg twice daily, administered without coagulation monitoring or dose adjustment, for the long-term secondary prevention of VTE.
