Neuraxial procedures in anticoagulated patient

"Main Messages
  • A pharmacokinetic-based approach to interruption of DOAC intake for neuraxial procedures appears to be safe.
  • Coagulation tests are best reserved for situations in which the timing of last intake of DOAC is unclear or if an urgent procedure is required, or in case the patient is on warfarin."
