Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement of treatment satisfaction (Evaluated through ACTS and TSQM questionnaires) [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
  • Incidence of ADRs and serious AEs (especially for hemorrhagic events, and liver disfunction with increase of liver-function-relating enzymes including bilirubin) [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
  • Incidence of events of stroke [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
  • Incidence of events of non-central nervous system embolism [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of patient's demography which might affect the QOL, safety and efficacy of Xarelto using ACTS and TSQM questionnaires [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
  • Determination of patient's medical history which might affect the QOL, safety and efficacy of Xarelto using ACTS and TSQM questionnaires [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
  • Determination of patient's background which might affect the QOL, safety and efficacy of Xarelto using ACTS and TSQM questionnaires [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
