Following the findings of the clinical trials in drug development, this global non-interventional cohort field study will investigate rivaroxaban under clinical practice conditions in comparison with current standard of care for patients with acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

The main goal is to analyze long-term safety in the use of rivaroxaban in the treatment of acute DVT in routine clinical practice.

Venous Thrombosis
Drug: Rivaroxaban (Xarelto, BAY59-7939)
Drug: Standard of care

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective

Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Major bleedings defined as overt bleeding associated with: A fall in hemoglobin of ≥2 g/dL; or a transfusion of ≥2 units of packed red blood cells or whole blood; or occurrence at a critical site [ Time Frame: after approximately 2 years or 30 days after stop of therapy ]
  • Number of patients with symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolic events [ Time Frame: after approximately 2 years or 30 days after stop of therapy ]
  • All cause mortality [ Time Frame: after approximately 2 years or 30 days after stop of therapy ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety variables will be summarized using descriptive statistics based on adverse cardiac events collection [ Time Frame: after approximately 2 years or 30 days after stop of therapy ]
  • Number of patients with other symptomatic thromboembolic events [ Time Frame: after approximately 2 years or 30 days after stop of therapy ]
  • Treatment satisfaction (patient reported outcomes) [ Time Frame: after approximately 2 years or 30 days after stop of therapy ]
