Background: It is unknown whether warfarin or aspirin therapy is superior for patients with heart failure who are in sinus rhythm. Methods: We designed this trial to determine whether warfarin (with a target international normalized ratio of 2.0 to 3.5) or aspirin (at a dose of 325 mg per day)...
- Dabigatran compared with warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation and symptomatic heart failure: a subgroup analysis of the RE-LY trial.

Aims We evaluated the effects of dabigatran compared with warfarin in the subgroup of patients with previous symptomatic heart failure (HF) in the RE-LY trial. Methods and results RE-LY compared two fixed and blinded doses of dabigatran (110 and 150 mg twice daily) with open-label warfarin in 18...
- Warfarin doesn't prevent death. Elliott, William T. // Primary Care Reports;Jul2012 Pharamacology watch, p1
