  27. 27. Treatment strategies in patients with MHV and :warfarin-induced major bleeding • (1) high dose vitamin K therapy (5-10 mg) should be administered immediately by slow intravenous infusion over 10-30 min, and a repeat dose should be considered at 12 h;
  28. 28. Treatment strategies in patients with MHV and :warfarin-induced major bleeding • (2) large volume of type-specific FFP (initially, emergency-released AB plasma = universal plasma donors, maximum 4 units) should be infused as tolerated according to desired INR levels as well as to stop bleeding.
  29. 29. Treatment strategies in patients with MHV and warfarin-induced major bleeding • 2)Caution is needed during large volume FFP infusion and diuretic therapy should be used when needed. • Four hourly INR needs to be checked for the first 24 h, if INR is not to the desired level, repeat FFP infusion.
  30. 30. Treatment strategies in patients with MHV and :warfarin-induced major bleeding • (3) PCC should be reserved for patients who are allergic or intolerant to FFP and in those who cannot tolerate a large volume of FFP such as patients with heart failure in view of its potential thrombotic complications till further data prove that it is safe to be used routinely in MHV patients;
  31. 31. Treatment strategies in patients with MHV and :warfarin-induced major bleeding • (4) Recombinant FⅦa should not be used in patients with MHV in view of its high incidence of thrombotic complications till further studies prove its safety in MHV patients; and bleed.
  32. 32. Treatment strategies in patients with MHV and :warfarin-induced major bleeding • (5) with regard to restarting any anticoagulation in patients with warfarin-induced major bleeding and MHV (especially in patients with high risk MHV = mitral MHV, multiple MHVs, MHV with prior stroke or atrial fibrillation, and MHV implanted within 6 mo), any anticoagulation should be withheld (or safe to re-start) • for7-14 d in patients with intracranial bleed and 48-72 h for patients with extra cranial

  34. 34. BLEEDING AND CORRECTION OF OVERANTICOAGULATION • The management of overanticoagulation is complicated in patients with prosthetic heart valves because overcorrection carries a risk of valve thrombosis. Because of these concerns, the 2005 ESC guideline recommendations vary with the clinical setting :
  35. 35. BLEEDING AND CORRECTION OF OVERANTICOAGULATION • Among patients who are not bleeding, those with an INR ≥6.0 should be admitted to the hospital and warfarin should be temporarily discontinued to permit a gradual reduction in INR. • Intravenous vitamin K should not be given because of the risk of valve thrombosis if the INR falls too quickly
  36. 36. BLEEDING AND CORRECTION OF OVERANTICOAGULATION • If the INR is >9 and there is no bleeding, warfarin should be discontinued and 1 to 2.5 mg of oral vitamin K should be administered. • The 2006 ACC/AHA guidelines and others note that, in contrast to the risk of high-dose intravenous vitamin K, low-dose (1 to 2.5 mg oral vitamin K safely corrects the excessive degree of anticoagulation more rapidly than simple withholding of warfarin, without making the patient temporarily resistant to further therapy with warfarin (
  37. 37. BLEEDING AND CORRECTION OF OVERANTICOAGULATION • Bleeding in patients who are therapeutically anticoagulated or over-anticoagulated often comes from a pathologic cause that should be identified and treated.
  38. 38. BLEEDING AND CORRECTION OF OVERANTICOAGULATION • In patients who are bleeding with a therapeutic or high INR, the risk of major bleeding (eg, intracranial or hemodynamically significant gastrointestinal bleeding) must be weighed against the risk of valve thrombosis.
  39. 39. High-risk features for thromboembolism • Atrial fibrillation • Prior thromboembolism • severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction (EF <30 percent), • The presence of a hypercoagulable state. • Patients with a mechanical mitral or tricuspid valve, two or more mechanical valves, or older aortic caged-ball or tilting disc valves • Surgery for malignancy or infection, which is associated with hypercoagulability.
  40. 40. BLEEDING AND CORRECTION OF OVERANTICOAGULATION • If the risk from major continued bleeding that is inaccessible to local control (particularly intracerebral bleeding) is considered greater than the risk of valve thrombosis, cessation of anticoagulation should be accomplished by the use of fresh frozen plasma (FFP) and intravenous vitamin K at a dose of 2.5 to 5 mg.
  41. 41. BLEEDING AND CORRECTION OF OVERANTICOAGULATION • For urgent situations, either prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) or recombinant human factor VIIa may be employed. • The INR should be monitored frequently. • Doses of vitamin K may be repeated at 12 hour intervals, if needed. • FFP, PCC, or recombinant human factor VIIa can be repeated if necessary, depending upon the INR response.
  42. 42. BLEEDING AND CORRECTION OF OVERANTICOAGULATION • The optimal time to resume warfarrin therapy after a major bleeding episode is uncertain. • But the ESC guidelines recommended resumption of warfarin at one week. • It was presumed that, at this interval, the long-term risk of further intracranial bleeding was less than the risk of valve thrombosis.

  47. 47. Case report :restarting anticoagulation
  48. 48. Conclusion • Available evidence ( even if of low quality )suggests that: • Restarting oral anticoagulant after few days and, stopping oral anticoagulant therapy for few days(7–14 days) are apparently safe. • The risk of severe organs damage due to bleeding when anticoagulation is not fully interrupted is much higher in these situations
  49. 49. Conclusion • In the worst-clinical-case scenario, the incidence of thromboembolic events in the absence of anticoagulant therapy in patients with a mechanical bileaflet valve is 22 per 100 patient-years • This is a high risk on a yearly basis, this corresponds to a 0.06% daily risk (i.e. 6 in 10,000 patients). Therefore, short interruption of anticoagulation may not be as dangerous as is often presumed.

  51. 51. Conclusion#1 In view of the lack of data regarding patients with mechanical heart valves and ICH, each case must be assessed on an individual basis.
  52. 52. Conclusion#2 The author recommend a multidisciplinary team approach involving haematologists, cardiothoracic surgeons ,neurosurgeons, neurologists and cardiologists. The risks of further hemorrhage need to be weighed against thromboembolism.
