- time to achieve stable warfarin dose [ Time Frame: 6 months ]time to get a stable warfarin dose is defined by the time span (days) from the initial dose until achieving three consecutive INR measurements within therapeutic range (2-3 or 2.5-3.5, according to indication.
- time to first bleeding [ Time Frame: 6 months ]time to first bleeding is defined as the time span (days) from the initiation of therapy until the first report of serious or life-threatening bleeding episode.
- time to first INR>4 [ Time Frame: 6 months ]time to first INR above 4 is an indicator of overanticoagulation that is defined as the time span (days) from the initiation of therapy until the first measurement of INR above 4.
