EdoxabaN or Warfarin Therapy In Cardiovascular Implantable Electrical Device Procedures in Patients With Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation


About this study

This is a prospective randomized comparative evaluation of Edoxaban and Warfarin for safety and efficacy in perioperative use in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing clinically indicated implantation or replacement of cardiovascular implantable electrical devices.The primary objective is to compare the rates of local and systemic bleeding in subjects randomized to Edoxaban compared to subjects randomized to continuous warfarin in within 30 days of cardiac rhythm device implant with concomitant non-valvular AF.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with established atrial fibrillation (AF) and bradycardia on long term (>3 weeks) therapeutic oral anticoagulant (OAC) with warfarin or another OAC who are undergoing new pacemaker system implant or existing pacemaker system revision.
  • Subjects with newly detected bradycardia -tachycardia syndrome and AF who have been recently (less than 3 weeks) started on warfarin, have a therapeutic international normalized ratio (INR) and no thrombus on trans-esophageal echocardiogram (TEE) who are undergoing a new pacemaker system implant or revision.
  • Subjects with AF and ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VT or VF) or acquired structural heart disease who are candidates for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy and are on long term (>3 weeks) therapeutic OAC with warfarin or another OAC who are undergoing new ICD system implant or existing ICD system revision.
  • Subjects with newly detected AF with VT or VF who have been recently (less than 3 weeks) started on warfarin, have a therapeutic INR and no thrombus on TEE who are undergoing ICD system implant or revision

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Clinically significant valvular heart disease
  • Subjects requiring cardiovascular implantable electrical device (CIED) lead extraction e.g. for device site infection, endocarditis, leads under advisory or other conditions warranting lead(s) system extraction.
  • Recent (<1 month) myocardial infarction
  • Documented left atrial (LA) thrombus on TEE
  • Contraindications to anticoagulant therapy or adverse event with prior warfarin or edoxaban therapy
  • Creatinine clearance <30ml/min or >95 ml/min
  • Hepatic disease, advanced
  • Recent stroke (<3 months) or thromboembolic event
  • Recent (<3months) intracranial or other major bleeding event
  • Use of concomitant dual antiplatelet therapy or other oral, subcutaneous or parenteral anticoagulant therapy
  • Subjects on warfarin without therapeutic INR levels before study entry
  • Subjects with other clinically significant medical condition
  • Subjects with life expectancy < 1 year
  • Lead extraction procedures
