  1. 1. Fibrillazione atriale: dall’Epidemiologia alle nuove terapie Roma, 16 Marzo 2013Vecchi e nuovi anticoagulanti orali a confronto Giuseppe Patti Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma
  2. 2. Why a novel anti-thrombotic Rx is needed in AF pts?  No stroke protection with aspirin (with or without clopidogrel)  Warfarin effective for stroke prevention, but - Delayed onset/offset - Unpredictable dose response - Narrow therapeutic index - Drug-drug, drug-food interactions - Problematic monitoring and compliance - High bleeding (especially ICH) - Slow reversibility
  3. 3. New Anticoagulants Xa factor inhibitor: Rivaroxaban Apixaban Edoxaban
  4. 4. New anticoagulants: advantages Short half-life: - Immediate onset of action - no need for bridging Fixed doses No lab. monitoring A few drug-drug interactions (no food interactions)
  5. 5. New oral anticoagulants: how do they compare?

AVK con INR 2-3 o I BDabigatran) è raccomandata per ≥3 settimane prima e per ≥4settimane dopo cardioversione, indipendentemente dalla tipologia(elettrica o farmacologica orale/endovenosa) Non ci sono dati pubblicati relativi alla cardioversione con Rivaroxaban o Apixaban
  24. 24. Practical issues with new anticoagulants  Is bridging Rx needed?  Stop before surgery  Switching from warfarin  Switching from LMWH  Switching from UFH
  25. 25. How to manage a bleeding event while on Rx with new anticoagulants? Discontinue the anticoagulant Investigate and treat the source of bleeding Maintain diuresis Blood volume replacement with/without fresh-frozen plasma Prothrombin complex concentrates, recombinant factor VIIa Platelet concentrates in case of Rx with long-acting antiplatelet drugs Use of activated charcoal Rx Dialysis for dabigatran
  26. 26. New anticoagulants Warfarin Economic issues  Excellent efficacy Unresolved issues  Low cost - No standardized monitoring  Long track record - Adherence to Rx  Centralized anticoag. clin. - Lack of antidote  Point of care testing - Long-term safety (real world) - No head-to-head comparison  INR q 12 w if stable

  57. 57. Possible reasons to AF keep pts on warfarin (1)  GOOD LEVEL OF CONTROL - Because of the twice daily dosing (D, A) and greater risk of nonhemorrhagic side effects (D) patients already taking warfarin with excellent INR control may have little to gain by switching to dabigatran. Patient values and preferences should influence the decision to initiate dabigatran.  RENAL FAILURE - Warfarin remains the treatment of choice for patients with a calculated creatinine clearance close to or less than 30 mL/min.  MECHANICAL HEART VALVE REPLACEMENT Schulman and Crowther 2012
  58. 58. Possible reasons to keep AF patients on warfarin (2) GI DISEASE AND ELDERLY - When extracranial bleeding is of particular concern, for example in patients over 75 yrs with a history of recurrent extracranial bleeding or with preexisting coagulopathy, warfarin may be preferable vs D because this drug is rapidly reversible. This concern may not be true for the factor Xa inhibitors (?) Patients with intestinal angiodysplasia, IBD, or diverticulosis, or those with a history of other forms of GI bleeding may experience a deterioration on treatment with D or R Discontinuation of D was more frequent as a result of GI distress, and over 11% of pts complained of dyspepsia (attributed to both tartaric acid contained in the capsule and to a high concentration of active drug in the colon). Schulman and Crowther 2012
  59. 59. Possible reasons to keep AF patients on warfarin (3) POOR COMPLIANCE (?) – However, with novel agents, the first marker of noncompliance is probably stroke or other thrombotic complications. COSTS (?) - Many patients who do not have drug coverage will probably remain on warfarin, despite evidence that from a broader perspective novel agents are cost-neutral or cost-effective in many settings Schulman and Crowther 2012
  60. 60. Possible reasons to keep AF patients on NOAs UNEXPLAINED POOR WARFARIN CONTROL - Warfarin-experienced patients who continue to have variable INR results, corresponding to a TTR of less than 65%, have lower rates of stroke and other complications when treated with D 150 mg twice daily POOR LEVEL OF CONTROL BECAUSE OF UNAVOIDABLE DRUG- DRUG INTERACTION – frequent need for antibiotic treatment, chemotherapy, amiodarone, frequent use of acetaminophen, azathioprine, or a large number of concomitant medications, particularly if the exposure to these medications varies HISTORY OF INTRACRANIAL BLEEDING NEW PATIENTS ON AF OR PATIENTS NEVER PRESCRIBED AVK LOGISTIC PROBLEMS PTS WILLING TO RECEIVE NOA Modified from Schulman and Crowther 2012
