What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

41. Relation of the CHA2DS2-VASc Score to Risk of Thrombotic and Embolic Stroke in Community-Dwelling Individuals Without Atrial Fibrillation (From The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities [ARIC] Study)

Relation of the CHA2DS2-VASc Score to Risk of Thrombotic and Embolic Stroke in Community-Dwelling Individuals Without Atrial Fibrillation (From The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities [ARIC] Study) Recent hospital-based cohort studies found the CHA2DS2-VASc score to be associated with ischemic stroke in individuals without atrial fibrillation (AF). Our aim was to determine the distribution of embolic and thrombotic strokes and association with the CHA2DS2-VASc score, among community-dwelling

42. Dialysis Modality and Incident Atrial Fibrillation in Older Patients With ESRD

Dialysis Modality and Incident Atrial Fibrillation in Older Patients With ESRD Atrial fibrillation (AF) is common in patients with kidney failure treated by maintenance dialysis. Whether the incidence of AF differs between patients receiving hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis is uncertain.Retrospective cohort study.Using the US Renal Data System, we identified older patients (≥67 years) with Medicare Parts A and B who initiated dialysis therapy (1996-2011) without a diagnosis of AF during

43. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial assessing the efficacy of S66913 in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. (PubMed)

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial assessing the efficacy of S66913 in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Antiarrhythmic drugs (AADs) for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) are associated with limited efficacy and adverse effects. Inhibition of the atrial current IKur, absent from the ventricle, is expected to be antiarrhythmic, without adverse cardiac effects, particularly ventricular pro-arrhythmic effects.A randomized clinical trial in symptomatic (...) related preclinical safety concerns, after 58 patients had been enrolled. The median AFB ranged from 4.3% to 10.3% at baseline in the four treatment groups. S66913 had no significant effect on AFB or on AFB plus atrial tachycardia (AT) burden, at any dosage; nor on any secondary endpoints including the number and duration of AT or AF episodes, and symptoms. The drug was well tolerated with no safety concern during the treatment or the extended clinical follow-up.DIAGRAF-IKUR was the first study

44. Development and validation of a score to detect paroxysmal atrial fibrillation after stroke

Development and validation of a score to detect paroxysmal atrial fibrillation after stroke Prolonged monitoring times (72 hours) are recommended to detect paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (pAF) after ischemic stroke but this is not yet clinical practice; therefore, an individual patient selection for prolonged ECG monitoring might increase the diagnostic yield of pAF in a resource-saving manner.We used individual patient data from 3 prospective studies (ntotal = 1,556) performing prolonged

45. Efficacy and safety of reduced-dose non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants in patients with atrial fibrillation: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

Efficacy and safety of reduced-dose non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants in patients with atrial fibrillation: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) require dose reductions according to patient or clinical factors for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). In this meta-analysis, we aimed to assess outcomes with reduced-dose NOACs when given as pre-specified in pivotal trials.Aggregated data abstracted from Phase III trials
