New Research Study Added
As part of Thrombosis UK's commitment in raising Awareness, Research and Care of Thrombosis. Our own Annya Stephens-Boal was part of the the research committee for the following new study.
Oral anticoagulants for primary prevention, treatment and secondary prevention of venous thromboembolic disease, and for prevention of stroke in atrial fibrillation: systematic review, network meta-analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis
The study found that the use of novel oral anticoagulants has advantages over warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation, but there was no strong evidence that they should replace warfarin or low-molecular-weight heparin in the primary prevention, treatment or secondary prevention of venous thromboembolic disease.
