This week’s View follows the latest information on anticoagulation therapy in various disease situations. Given the addition of the new anticoagulants that have come out in recent years, there is a lot of confusion about when to use what drug. As a result, since 2013, the College has maintained an Anticoagulation Management Clinical Topic Collection on ACC.org, where many of these questions are considered. Do you know the potential harms of anticoagulating a patient with an unprovoked venous thromboembolism? Do you know when to interrupt anticoagulation for a patient with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation and how to bridge him or her through surgery? The resources on ACC.org can help you answer these questions and more.
