When the upper chambers of a person's heart receive irregular electrical signals it causes abnormal rhythm in the heart beat. This is called atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation increases the chance of having a heart attack or stroke. Some patients also get new heart valves using a catheter. Often doctors give patients a medicine called a vitamin K antagonist (VKA), because it is considered the standard care. This study will see how edoxaban compares to VKA in patients who got a new heart valve by using a catheter. The study will compare the two drugs for up to three years after heart valve replacement, looking at the drug's overall side effects (called adverse events) and major bleeding.

Detailed Description

Use of Edoxaban in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and indication to chronic oral anticoagulation (OAC) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)


- To assess the effect of Edoxaban versus vitamin K antagonist (VKA) on net adverse clinical events (NACE), i.e., the composite of all-cause death, myocardial infarction (MI), ischemic stroke, systemic thromboembolism (SEE), valve thrombosis, and major bleeding (International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis [ISTH] definition).

- To assess the effect of Edoxaban versus VKA on major bleeding (ISTH definition).


Study information shown on this site is derived from ClinicalTrials.gov (a public registry operated by the National Institutes of Health). The listing of studies provided is not certain to be all studies for which you might be eligible. Furthermore, study eligibility requirements can be difficult to understand and may change over time, so it is wise to speak with your medical care provider and individual research study teams when making decisions related to participation.
