Abstract

In the study, patients newly diagnosed with hip fracture from 2005 –2013 were followed until late 2016. Among 34,991 patients, 4602 (13%) received osteoporosis treatment during follow-up. Alendronate was associated with 67% and 45% lower risks of one-year CV death and heart attack, respectively. It was associated with an 18% reduced risk of stroke within five years and a 17% reduced risk of stroke within 10 years. Protective effects were not evident for other classes of osteoporosis treatments. “There is a world-wide crisis in the treatment of osteoporosis, due to patients’ awareness of the extremely rare side effects,” said senior au

Abstract

*citation from Havelock Ellis ‘Impressions and Comments’ Introduction Rivaroxaban is an oral direct factor Xa inhibitor belonging to the novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) class. Concerning efficacy and tolerability, it has been reported to be more effective than enoxaparin in preventing venous thromboembolism in patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery,1,2 and was non-inferior to enoxaparin followed by warfarin in a study involving patients with established venous thrombosis.3 Its good bioavailability, rapid-action and a half-life of 5–13 h,4 associated with a highly reproducible anticoagulant activity and the same rate of bleeding compl

Dose capping of enoxaparin results in sub-therapeutic anti-Xa level

Kristopher S Lyons, Vivienne Nesbitt, Ian B A Menown

Abstract

Introduction The low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) enoxaparin is recommended by the European Society of Cardiology as an antithrombotic agent for the treatment of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) (class I level A indication in the treatment of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction [MI] along with thrombolytic therapy and class IIa level B recommendation in the treatment of ACS without ST elevation).1,2 A dosing strategy of 1 mg/kg twice daily is recommended as higher doses have been shown to result in increased bleeding without further clinical benefit.3 Weight-adjusted dose reduction is advised in patients >75 years and in those with
