          Abstract

          The clinical introduction of new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) has stimulated the development of tests to quantify the effects of these drugs and manage complications associated with their use. Until recently, the only treatment choices for the prevention of venous thromboembolism in orthopedic surgical patients, as well as for stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation, were vitamin K antagonists, antiplatelet drugs, and unfractionated and low-molecular-weight heparins. With the approval of NOACs, treatment options and consequent diagnostic challenges have expanded.
