Giving NOAC treatment at myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery lowers major vascular complications
ACC 2018 The MANAGE trial studied the effect of dabigatran in patients with myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery. After a mean of 16 months follow-up, a relative risk reduction of 28% in major vascular complications was seen.
This 3-minute education provides a summary of just presented scientific data, recorded during the ACC 2018. The objective is to provide a brief commentary and potential implications of these findings.
