Use of Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOACs) in Special Populations

21 March 2024

Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOACs) have largely overtaken vitamin K antagonists and the heparins as the preferred anticoagulant for an expanding number of indications with similar or even superior safety and efficacy. The limits of its utility are also being tested on many previously forbidden fronts. We now have better clarity in our knowledge and understanding of its safety and efficacy in sub-populations such as the renally impaired, extremes of weight, cancer patients and patients with thrombosis in unusual sites. Many such sub-population have an unmet need in anticoagulant options. This lecture will discuss the intricacies of DOAC use outside of mainstream populations and how we can best navigate anticoagulating these individuals with or without the DOACs. 

After the lecture, the participants will be able to gain an understanding on:

  • The role and limits of DOACs in special populations 
  • Selection of individuals for anticoagulating with DOAC
  • The monitoring of individuals started on DOACs
  • Future directions of DOACs in special populations
