An alternative to warfarin for patients with PE
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Consider treating patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE) with rivaroxaban, a factor Xa inhibitor; it works as well as low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) followed by warfarin, but may cause fewer major bleeds. Strength of recommendation: B: Based on a single, nonblinded randomized controlled trial.
