Perioperative management of patients receiving new oral anticoagulants: an international survey.
New oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are increasingly replacing standard anticoagulants. These new drugs have been recently introduced in clinical practice, and specific knowledge regarding preoperative interruption, anticoagulation assessment, and reversal therapies is needed. In this article, 3 main areas related to perioperative NOACs management are discussed: (1) physicians' knowledge, (2) current practices, and (3) perspectives to improve management of patients treated with NOACs.
