Since rivaroxaban has a rapid onset of action, caution should be used in patients who have had major surgery or other procedures associated with a high bleeding risk.
Prothrombin complex concentrates have been used in cases of potentially life-threatening bleeding, but this is not based on high quality evidence ( table 13 ).We generally restart dabigatran one day after low bleeding risk surgery (if it was interrupted) and two to three days after high bleeding risk surgery.We often delay rivaroxaban for two to three days after high bleeding risk procedures and, if needed, use prophylactic dose LMW heparin for this period.We generally restart apixaban one day after low bleeding risk surgery (if it was interrupted).Thus, for high bleeding risk procedures, the patient will skip two doses of rivaroxaban, and not receive any doses on surgical days minus 2, minus 1, or the day of surgery.Dabigatran etexilate--a novel, reversible, oral direct thrombin inhibitor: interpretation of coagulation assays and reversal of anticoagulant activity.These intervals are based on the apixaban elimination half-life of 8 to 15 hours.The pharmacology and management of the vitamin K antagonists: the Seventh ACCP Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy.How I treat anticoagulated patients undergoing an elective procedure or surgery.

Tell your doctor right away if you have back pain, tingling, numbness, muscle weakness (especially in your legs and feet), or loss of control of the bowels or bladder (incontinence).A normal or near-normal aPTT may be used in selected patients to evaluate whether dabigatran has been adequately cleared from the circulation prior to surgery (eg, patients at high risk of surgical bleeding) ( table 7 ).

The clinician needs to decide whether bridging is appropriate and, if so, whether the benefit applies preoperatively, postoperatively, or both.When found, these are addressed by vetting through a multi-level review process, and through requirements for references to be provided to support the content.The management of anticoagulation in patients undergoing surgical procedures is challenging because interrupting anticoagulation for a procedure transiently increases the risk of thromboembolism.
People with atrial fibrillation (an irregular heart beat) are at an increased risk of forming a blood clot in the heart, which can travel to the brain, causing a stroke, or to other parts of the body.
