Patients who are hospitalised for acute medical illnesses are at an increased risk for venous thromboembolism. Betrixaban recently became the first NOAC to receive approval for extended-duration thromboprophylaxis after hospital discharge in this patient population. In this journal club, we take a look at the most recent post-hoc analysis to emerge from the APEX trial, which considers the impact of betrixaban on fatal or irreversible ischemic or bleeding events compared with standard-duration enoxaparin.
