When to pause an antithrombotic agent ?

CoaguSafe has a list of most antithrombotic agents. These can be sorted by generic or brand name. Recommendations for pausing (according to international guidelines) are already visible in list view. The detail view expands on high- or low-risk procedures and - if appropriate - on patients with renal insufficency.

Each drug belongs to a drug class, i.e. thrombin inhibitors, FXa inhibitors, glycoproteine IIbIIIa inhibitors and others. Mode of action and monitoring is described for each group.

On warfarin or new oral anticoagulant ?

Oral anticoagulation has to be suspended for many invasive procedures. These patients might need 'bridging' with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), dependent on the thromboembolic risk.

The thromboembolic profile is dependent on:

  • Valvular risk factors
  • Atrial fibrillation and CHADS2 VA2Sc score
  • Probability of venous thromboembolism

Management of the new oral anticoagulants (NOAC) is frequently dependent on renal function. Therefore renal function is also accounted for.

Cardiovascular and bleeding risk?

Pausing antithrombotic drugs is important before invasive procedures are performed. On the other hand there are situations in which such suspension of antithrombotic agents might not be recommended.

The cardiovascular risk (e.g. recent coronary stents - bare metal or drug-eluting) as well as bleeding risk of the invasive procedure can be estimated.

Based on these two estimations suggestions of the guidelines are presented.

Guidelines

CoaguSafe is based on international and national guidelines. After selection of a guideline the respective recommendations are presented. If a specific drug is not included in the selected guideline, then alternative recommendations are shown (and labelled with an asterix).

The following guidelines are currently included:

  • American society of regional anesthesia and pain therapy (ASRA)
  • Deutsche Gesellschaft für Anästhesie und Intensivmedizin (DGAI)
  • European society of anaesthesiology (ESA)
  • Kantonsspital St. Gallen
  • United Kingdom (AAGBI, OAA, RA-UK)
  • Österreichische Gesellschaft Anästhesiologie, Reanimation und Intensivmedizin (ÖGARI)

Should a particular guideline be missing, then drop me an email. On specific request local guidelines can also be included.
