Active Control

This trial requires 206 total participants across 2 different treatment groups

This trial involves 2 different treatments. Treatment is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are in Phase 2 and have already been tested with other people.

Group VKA
103 patients. First intake at postoperative day 1 or later when anticoagulation is secondary indicated. Dosage adapted to INR = [2.0-3.0], parenteral (subcoutaneous low-weight molecular or intravenous unfractionated heparin) until INR > or = 2.0. Daily INR during hospital stay, then management by familial doctor. Duration: 3 months
Group DOAC103 patients - One drug among the 4 DOAC according the morbidity of each patient (preoperative DOAC, oral nutrition recovery). First intake at hospital discharge - parenteral (subcoutaneous low-weight molecular or intravenous unfractionated heparin) during hospital stay. Regular daily dosages according the drug, its indication (atrial fibrillation/flutter or biological mitral replacement/repair or biological tricuspid replacement versus venous thromboembolism) and the morbidity of each patient (age, weight, creatinine ou its clearance). Validation by one referent pharmacist. No biological monitoring. Duration: 3 months
