Comparison of the New Blood Thinners for Atrial Fibrillation

Dr. Sharon Orrange - February 12, 2014

Coumadin (warfarin) has been the mainstay of treatment for stroke prevention in folks with atrial fibrillation. When the atrium is fibrillating, and losing its atrial kick, there is a higher risk of clot forming in the atrium which will break off into the ventricle, then head to your brain and cause a stroke.

For that reason, we treat some folks with atrial fibrillation with blood thinners to prevent that stroke risk. See More

First, who can use Xarelto? Xarelto is a pill approved for use in folks with a known clot in their leg (deep venous thrombosis or DVT), a clot in their lung (pulmonary embolism or PE), prevention of clot/stroke in people with atrial fibrillation who do NOT have valve disease, and to decrease the risk of forming a clot in your leg or lung after hip or knee replacement surgery. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange - May 07, 2013

Those of you on the blood thinner Coumadin (warfarin) know the dangers of your blood being too thin, which can lead to serious bleeding complications.
