ARISTIZABAL, Julián M et al. Practical considerations for the use of new oral anticoagulants. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2012, vol.19, n.3, pp.135-141. ISSN 0120-5633.

Despite the proven efficacy on the use of warfarin as anticoagulant therapy, the multiple interactions, narrow therapeutic index and the need for serial monitoring have raised the need for the development of new drugs such as dabigatran, rivaroxaban and apixaban, that offer new alternatives for treating the anticoagulated patient. Knowledge of the pharmacologic and pharmacokinetic characteristics and the specific context in which they can be used become a necessity for physicians faced with these patients.

Keywords : arrhythmias; clinical cardiology; pharmacology.
