NCT02081807
First received: March 6, 2014
Last updated: June 13, 2017

  Purpose
This cohort study is the sequential expansion of the comparative effectiveness study of oral anticoagulants and plans to identify initiators of oral anticoagulants using electronic claims data from a commercial insurance database to quantify associations between anticoagulant choice (warfarin and dabigatran) and the occurrence of selected outcomes in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation at risk for stroke.

Condition
Atrial Fibrillation

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Sequential Expansion of Comparative Effectiveness of Oral Anticoagulants: A Cohort Study
