60 Initial Pharmacologic Therapy of Uncomplicated DVT Unfractionated heparin (UFH) Low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) Fondaparinux Oral factor Xa inhibitors Rivaroxaban Apixaban Oral direct thrombin inhibitors Dabigatran
61 Traditional Anticoagulants: Pros and Cons Unfractionated Heparin Use is complicated by narrow therapeutic range, inter-individual variation in anticoagulant effect, and increased risk of heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) Ideal in patients with: severe renal insufficiency (CrCl < 30 ml/min) patients at increased risk for bleeding, in whom rapid reversal of the anticoagulant effect may be needed patients who receive thrombolytic therapy Initial treatment with UFH is generally a segue to therapeutic dose warfarin (INR 2-3)
62 Traditional Anticoagulants: Pros and Cons LMWH Use is complicated by inconvenient route of administration (subcutaneous), cost When compared to UFH, it is more bioavailable, has predictable dosing, has longer duration of effect, has lower risk of HIT, has less effect on bone metabolism, and no requirement for monitoring Ideal in patients with: cancer who require long-term anticoagulation Initial treatment with LMWH is generally a segue to therapeutic dose warfarin (INR 2-3)
63 Traditional Anticoagulants: Pros and Cons Fondaparinux Has many of the same advantages and disadvantages of LMWH Double-blind, randomized MATISSE trial randomized 2205 patients with acute symptomatic DVT to: fondaparinux (5, 7.5, or 10 mg subcutaneously once daily for weights of <50, 50 to 100, or >100 kg, respectively) enoxaparin (1 mg/kg subcutaneously twice daily) for at least five days, and until vitamin K antagonists were therapeutic with INR > 2 Fondaparinux is at least as effective and safe as enoxaparin for initial treatment of DVT

67 How Do NOACs Stack Up to Warfarin? 2012 Meta-analysis of 9 randomized trials concluded: Compared with VKAs, NOACs had similar risk of recurrence of acute VTE and all cause mortality, though rivaroxaban was associated with a reduced risk of bleeding Compared with each other, no one NOAC was superior to any other in terms of recurrent VTE, mortality or major bleeding Subsequent studies suggest apixaban and edoxaban also associated with a reduced risk of bleeding Further trials and postmarketing surveillance are needed for all of the NOACs Fox BD, et al. BMJ. 2012;345:e7498.

70 Relative Risk for All-Cause Mortality with NOACs vs VKAs Fox BD, et al. BMJ. 2012;345:e by British Medical Journal Publishing Group
71 Pros and Cons of NOACs Rapid onset Predictable effect Specific target Few food / drug interactions Renal elimination Difficult to monitor Potential for overuse High cost Short half-life No antidote
72 Which Agent to Choose? Consider patient's values and preferences Risk tolerance for bleeding versus clotting Ability to afford drug Ability to get lab work done Need to affiliate closely with healthcare providers Consider patient's bleeding risk factors Age, previous bleeding, cancer, renal failure, liver failure, thrombocytopenia, anemia, previous stroke, diabetes, antiplatelet therapy, poor anticoagulant control, co-morbidity and reduced functional capacity, recent surgery, frequent falls, alcohol abuse
73 If You Choose a NOAC for VTE Rivaroxaban Health Canada approved for treatment of DVT without symptomatic PE and for treatment of PE Recommended dosing is 15 mg twice daily for first 21 days, followed by 20 mg once daily for duration of treatment Overlap with a parenteral agent not needed Should not be used in women who are pregnant or breast-feeding. Dabigatran Not Health Canada approved for treatment of DVT or PE
74 Rivaroxaban : Only Currently Approved NOAC for VTE Treatment Straightforward oral treatment option for DVT and PE Ideal for primary care physicians who... Are not comfortable with the use of LMWH Do not have the necessary time and resources to teach patients self-injection Benefits of Rivaroxaban in treatment of VTE Stable patients can be treated in the primary care setting, without referral to emergency rooms More rapid treatment initiation No overlap with LMWH or UFH required Greater convenience for patient and physician Potentially reduced health care costs
75 Case #2: Deep Vein Thrombosis In an Outpatient A 45 year old man with a past history of hypertension and seasonal allergies presents to his family doctor with a swollen, erythematous and tender left leg. He reports no recent changes in his health or activities. He is on hydrochlorothiazide and ceterizine. The nearest lab is closed, so a duplex ultrasound is not available
76 Case #2: Deep Vein Thrombosis In an Outpatient What treatment options will you offer? If an ultrasound is not rapidly available patients with moderate to high suspicion of DVT, and a low to moderate risk of bleeding, should start therapy before the diagnosis is confirmed!
77 Case #2: Deep Vein Thrombosis In an Outpatient The patient returns for an ultrasound the following morning. A duplex ultrasound confirms an occlusive deep vein thrombosis extending from the popliteal vein to the common femoral vein
78 Case #2: Deep Vein Thrombosis In an Outpatient What treatment options will you offer? What duration of treatment is required?
79 Duration of Therapy Categories of VTE Isolated distal DVT, DVT or PE provoked by a transient risk factor First unprovoked DVT or PE Duration of Treatment 3 months Minimum of 3 months and then reassess. For patients with no or only minor risk factors for bleeding, long-term therapy with annual review can be offered. Decision to continue anticoagulation should consider patient s values and preferences. Second unprovoked DVT or PE Cancer-associated VTE Minimum of 3 months and then reassess. For patients with no or only minor risk factors for bleeding, long-term therapy with annual review should be encouraged. Decision to continue anticoagulation should consider patient s values and preferences. Minimum of 3 months and then reassess. Continue if active cancer (overt evidence of cancer) or continuing to receive anti-cancer therapy Schulman S, et al.. N Engl J Med. 1995;332(25):1661.
80 Decisions About Duration of Therapy Must Consider Bleeding and Thrombosis Risk, as well as Patient s Values and Preferences Transient risk factors include: surgery, hospitalization or plaster cast immobilization, all within 3 months, lesser leg injuries or immobilizations more recently (e.g. within 6 weeks), estrogen therapy or pregnancy, prolonged travel (e.g. > 8 hours) Bleeding risk factors include: Age, previous bleeding, cancer, renal failure, liver failure, thrombocytopenia, anemia, previous stroke, diabetes, antiplatelet therapy, poor anticoagulant control, co-morbidity and reduced functional capacity, recent surgery, frequent falls, alcohol abuse
81 Long-term Therapy with NOACs EINSTEIN-EXTENSION: compared to placebo, rivaroxaban associated with less recurrent DVT, more clinically relevant nonmajor bleeding, and similar nonfatal major bleeding after 6 to 12 months of therapy AMPLIFY-EXT: compared to placebo, apixaban (prophylactic or therapeutic dose) associated with less recurrent VTE after 6 months of therapy RE-MEDY: compared to warfarin, dabigatran associated with similar rate of recurrent VTE, less major or clinically relevant bleeding, and more acute coronary syndrome after at least 3 months of therapy RE-SONATE: compared to placebo, dabigatran associated with less recurrent VTE, and more major or clinically relevant bleeding after at least 3 months of therapy
82 Rivaroxaban: An Approved NOAC for Long-term VTE Treatment At this time, Rivaroxaban can be used for long-term treatment of both DVT and PE EINSTEIN-EXTENSION trial provides supporting evidence Patients should be counselled on increased risk of clinically relevant non-major bleeding
83 What about acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) for long-term therapy? Two studies compared 100 mg ASA to placebo in patients with first unprovoked DVT who completed 6-18 months of anticoagulation Pooled analysis showed that patients on ASA had: 32% reduction in VTE recurrence (p=0.007) 34% reduction in other major vascular events (e.g., ACS, stroke) (p=0.002) No significant increase in major or clinically significant bleeding ASA should not be used for initial treatment of DVT ASA likely provides less benefit than continued anticoagulation for extended treatment!

84 Case #3: Pulmonary Embolism in an Outpatient A 25 year old woman with a past history of mild asthma presents to the emergency room with sharp chest pain, worsened on deep inspiration. Vital signs are stable, and peripheral oxygen saturations are 99% on room air. Her D- dimer is markedly elevated (>3000). She reports starting a combined oral contraceptive pill 30 days ago. CT-PA shows bilateral pulmonary emboli.
85 Case #3: Pulmonary Embolism in an Outpatient What treatment options will you offer? What duration of treatment is required? Can this patient be sent home?
86 Case #3: Pulmonary Embolism in an Outpatient What treatment options will you offer? Rivaroxaban Warfarin (with initial overlap with subcut LMWH or IV UFH, until INR > 2) What duration of treatment is required? PE in the setting of a transient risk factor Must treat for a minimum of 3 months Can discontinue anticoagulation at 3 months if patient discontinues estrogen-containing products Can this patient be sent home? YES!
87 Do I need to consider thrombolytic therapy? Paucity of evidence Patients with acute PE and signs of hemodynamic compromise suggesting right heart failure are at increased risk of early mortality They should be considered for systemic thrombolysis May reduce mortality May increase risk of major bleeding including 2% risk of intracranial hemorrhage
