    Alternative to Warfarin

    There are no data to support the use of non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in patients with MHVs. In fact, dabigatran, an oral direct thrombin inhibitor, was associated with a higher rate of valve thrombosis and bleeding complications in patients shortly after placement of an MHV compared...
