Abstract

Graham et al recently reported on the comparative effectiveness of warfarin and non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) among patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. This real-world study was based on Medicare claims data.1 The authors concluded that dabigatran and apixaban were associated with a more favorable benefit-harm profile than rivaroxaban in standard-dose NOAC users.
