Abstract

Significant part of patients who require orthopaedic surgery receives long-term antithrombotic therapy due to cardiological reasons. Among oral anticoagulants we have vitamin K antagonists (warfarin and acenocoumarol), a direct thrombin inhibitor (dabigatran) and direct factor Xa inhibitors (rivaroxaban, apixaban). In the article we present necessary information about proper antithrombotic treatment during the perioperative period based on European Cardiac Society guidelines and position statements.
