Clinical significance:
Rivaroxaban is an oral factor Xa inhibitor that is indicated to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. It is also indicated for the treatment, prophylaxis, or the reduction in the risk of reoccurrence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE). Rivaroxaban does not need to be monitored routinely, however, exceptions may include determination of failure of therapy vs. poor compliance, or potential dose adjustment required for renal or hepatic dysfunction.
