Focus on

By attending this Webinar, the participants will understand:

  • The management strategies that are currently available to manage bleeding events or urgent surgery in patients treated with NOACs
  • The clinical situations for which specific reversal agents to the NOACs may be useful and learn the advantages of such therapy as opposed to reversal strategies using unspecific haemostatic agents
  • The development and characteristics of idarucizumab, the specific reversal agent for dabigatran, of andexanet for the factor Xa inhibitors apixaban,  rivaroxaban and edoxaban, and LWMH, and of aripazine or PER977 for both thrombin and factor Xa inhibitors
  • The results of pre-clinical studies investigating the use of NOACs in different bleeding models
  • How healthy volunteer studies have demonstrated the immediate, complete, and sustained reversal of NOAC-induced anticoagulation by one of the specific antidotes
  • How RE-VERSE AD, the patient study of idarucizumab in dabigatran-treated patients and ANNEXA, the patient study of andexanet in Xa inhibitor treated patients, may demonstrate the clinical value of the specific reversal strategy
