Anticoagulation for coexisting bioprosthetic aortic valve thrombosis and anticoagulant-related bleeding: "A double edge sword".
Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)
The choice of anticoagulant agents for newly implanted bioprosthetic valve varies significantly, particularly in the presence of postoperative atrial fibrillation with increasing use of nonvitamin K oral anticoagulation (NOACs) in recent years. We reported a challenging case with a coexisting bioprosthetic aortic valve thrombosis and significant anticoagulant-related bleeding. Clinical management strategy and brief literature review were presented.
