Rivaroxaban or Aspirin for Extended Treatment of Venous Thromboembolism
31/12/69 - Venous thromboembolism, which includes deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, is the third most common cause of vascular death after myocardial infarction and stroke. The mainstay of treatment is anticoagulation, and in patients without active cancer, guidelines suggest the use of direct oral…

Reduced-Intensity Rivaroxaban for the Prevention of Recurrent Venous Thromboembolism
31/12/69 - Warfarin and direct oral anticoagulant agents prevent recurrent venous thromboembolism. When a first episode of venous thromboembolism occurs in association with a transient risk factor (e.g. surgery), treatment can be stopped after 3 months.

EGDT is a 6-hour resuscitation protocol for…

Tight Glycemic Control in Critically Ill Children
31/12/69 - Tight glycemic control to a blood glucose level of 80 to 110 mg per deciliter (4.4 to 6.1 mmol per liter) was originally shown to reduce morbidity and mortality in a single-center, randomized clinical trial involving critically ill adult surgical patients, but subsequent trials involving adults…
