Completed

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

This is local prospective multicenter observational non-interventional local study. Primary study objective is investigate and describe prescription pattern of neurologists in secondary stroke or non-CNS (non-Central Nervous System) systemic embolism prevention in patients with AF (Atrial fibrillation) and prior stroke or TIA (Transient Ischemic attack) who treat with rivaroxaban at an initial visit and three follow-up visits.

Conditions

Interventions

  • Rivaroxaban ( Xarelto, BAY59-7939) Other
    Intervention Desc: Patients with prior stroke or TIA history and who have never taken anticoagulation treatment regarding AF before. One film-coated tablet contains Rivaroxaban 15 mg or 20mg
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Group 1

Trial Design

  • Observation: Cohort
  • Perspective: Prospective
  • Sampling: Non-Probability Sample

Trial Population

Male and female patients ≥ 18 years old with prior stroke or TIA history and who have never taken anticoagulation treatment regarding AF before and meet criteria of inclusion and exclusion.

Outcomes

Type Measure Time Frame Safety Issue
Primary Prescription pattern of neurologists in secondary stroke or non-CNS systemic embolism prevention in patients with AF and prior stroke or TIA who treat with rivaroxaban up to 6 months No
Secondary Descriptive characteristics of patients after prior stroke/TIA in the need of secondary stroke prevention with Xarelto (gender, age, race, alcohol/smoking, BMI and BP abnormalities, CHA2DS2 VASC, HAS BLED, Rankin Score) up to 6 months No
Secondary Identify time of start of anticoagulation therapy immediately after event (stroke or TIA) for secondary prevention in real life practice up to 6 months No
Secondary Describe AE characteristics (frequency, severity, relation to treatment, AE treatment, AE outcome) up to 6 months Yes
