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.

341. Management of anticoagulation following central nervous system hemorrhage in patients with high thromboembolic risk Full Text available with Trip Pro

Management of anticoagulation following central nervous system hemorrhage in patients with high thromboembolic risk Management of anticoagulation following central nervous system hemorrhage in patients with high thromboembolic risk Management of anticoagulation following central nervous system hemorrhage in patients with high thromboembolic risk Hawryluk GW, Austin JW, Furlan JC, Lee JB, O'Kelly C, Fehlings MG CRD summary The review acknowledged the low quality of the evidence, but suggested (...) that it may be important to restart anticoagulation earlier than thought previously with the timing and intensity modified based on perceived individual risks. Further research was needed. Evidence limitations suggest that the findings should be interpreted with caution, but the authors' recommendation for further research seems appropriate. Authors' objectives To identify the optimal timing and intensity for anticoagulation re-initiation following central nervous system haemorrhage in patients with high

Subjects were enrolled if they were ambulatory with symptomatic DVT. Half of the 90 subjects also had silent pulmonary emboli. Subjects were randomized to anticoagulation or NSAIDs and there was 1 fatal PE during the study period (anticoagulation group). In 1960, Barritt and Jordan performed a randomized trial evaluating anticoagulation for presumed PE. While the study is often cited

347. Improved Oral Anticoagulation After a Dietary Vitamin K-Guided Strategy. A Randomized Controlled Trial Full Text available with Trip Pro

Improved Oral Anticoagulation After a Dietary Vitamin K-Guided Strategy. A Randomized Controlled Trial Dietary vitamin K is thought to be an important factor that interferes with anticoagulation stability, but the clinical applicability of this interaction has not been evaluated adequately in prospective studies.In a randomized controlled trial that enrolled outpatients with a recent international normalized ratio (INR) outside the therapeutic target, we compared 2 strategies to optimize long (...) -term oral anticoagulation: (1) a conventional approach based on changes in anticoagulant prescription and (2) a dietary vitamin K-guided strategy based on simple modifications of the amount of vitamin K-rich foods ingested per week. The primary efficacy end point was the percentage of patients who achieved a prespecified INR target at 90 days after randomization. Study population (n=132) predominantly included men with mechanical heart prostheses (58%) or atrial fibrillation (35%). Over time

The net clinical benefit of warfarin anticoagulation in atrial fibrillation. Guidelines recommend warfarin use in patients with atrial fibrillation solely on the basis of risk for ischemic stroke without antithrombotic therapy. These guidelines rely on ischemic stroke rates observed in older trials and do not explicitly account for increased risk for hemorrhage.To quantify the net clinical benefit of warfarin therapy in a cohort of patients with atrial fibrillation.Mixed retrospective

349. Aspirin or anticoagulants for treating recurrent miscarriage in women without antiphospholipid syndrome. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Aspirin or anticoagulants for treating recurrent miscarriage in women without antiphospholipid syndrome. Since hypercoagulability might result in recurrent miscarriage, anticoagulant agents could potentially increase the live-birth rate in subsequent pregnancies in women with either inherited thrombophilia or unexplained recurrent miscarriage.To evaluate the efficacy and safety of anticoagulant agents, such as aspirin and heparin, in women with a history of at least two miscarriages without (...) apparent causes other than inherited thrombophilia.We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's Trials Register (April 2008), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library 2007, Issue 1), MEDLINE (January 1966 to March 2007), and EMBASE (1980 to March 2007). We scanned bibliographies of all located articles for any unidentified articles.Randomised and quasi-randomised controlled trials that assessed the effect of anticoagulant treatment on the live-birth rate

Combined leg compression and anticoagulants effective in preventing venous thromboembolism PEARLS Practical Evidence About Real Life Situations PEARLS are succinct summaries of Cochrane Systematic Reviews for primary care practitioners.

Bottom line Compared with compression alone, combined prophylactic modalities significantly decrease the incidence of VTE, ie, symptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Compared with pharmacological prophylaxis alone, combined modalities significantly reduce the incidence of DVT but the effect on PE could not be determined because of the lack of events in the included studies.
