Plasma Levels of #Homocysteine is Associated with Liver #Fibrosis in Health Check-Up Population

Studies have shown a link between homocysteine (Hcy) and heart diseases, kidney diseases, cerebrovascular diseases, liver diseases, and other pathological conditions. However, the relationship between Hcy and liver fibrosis (LF) is unclear. Here, we studied the link between plasma Hcy concentration and LF. Methods: We determined and recorded the plasma Hcy concentration, general biochemical parameters, …

#Edoxaban versus Vitamin K Antagonist for Atrial #Fibrillation after #TAVR

The role of direct oral anticoagulants as compared with vitamin K antagonists for atrial fibrillation after successful transcatheter aortic-valve replacement (TAVR) has not been well studied. METHODSWe conducted a multicenter, prospective, randomized, open-label, adjudicator-masked trial comparing edoxaban with vitamin K antagonists in patients with prevalent or incident atrial fibrillation as the indication for oral anticoagulation …
