AXADIA – AFNET 8 trial supports oral anticoagulation with Apixaban in AF patients on hemodialysis

In the AXADIA – AFNET 8 trial, oral anticoagulation with the non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant (NOAC) Apixaban appeared equally safe and effective as vitamin K antagonists (VKA) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and severe chronic kidney disease. The results were presented at the American Heart Association (AHA) congress on 06.11.2022 in Chicago, USA [1] and simultaneously published in Circulation [2].
