Apixaban

Apixaban Reactions 1704, p47 - 2 Jun 2018 Giant non-traumatic abdominal wall haematoma: case report An 82-year-old woman developed giant non-traumatic abdominal wall haematoma during treatment with apixaban [dosage, route, time to reaction onset and outcome not stated]. The woman, who had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and atrial fibrillation, had been receiving apixaban therapy. She was hospitalised for the exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. On day 5 of the hospitalisation, she complained of mild left side abdominal pain. The following day, her haemoglobin decreased from 11.7 g/dL to 8.4 g/dL. Her abdomen was ecchymotic, tender and swollen. CT scan of abdomen/pelvis demonstrated haematoma of size 22.6 x 8.7 x 7.3cm on the left ventral abdominal wall. The woman’s treatment with apixaban was stopped. Thereafter, she was started receiving treatment with warm compresses and analgesics [unspecified]. The next day, her haemoglobin decreased to 7.1 g/dL. Therefore, she received one unit of packed RBCs. Her haemoglobin then remained stable for days prior to the discharge.

Abstract

Reactions 1704, p47 - 2 Jun 2018 Giant non-traumatic abdominal wall haematoma: case report An 82-year-old woman developed giant non-traumatic abdominal wall haematoma during treatment with apixaban [dosage, route, time to reaction onset and outcome not stated]. The woman, who had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and atrial fibrillation, had been receiving apixaban therapy. She was hospitalised for the exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. On day 5 of the hospitalisation, she complained of mild left side abdominal pain. The following day, her haemoglobin decreased from 11.7 g/dL to 8.4 g/dL. Her abdomen was ecchymotic, tender and swollen. CT scan of abdomen/pelvis demonstrated haematoma of size 22.6 x 8.7 x 7.3cm on the left ventral abdominal wall. The woman’s treatment with apixaban was stopped. Thereafter, she was started receiving treatment with warm compresses and analgesics [unspecified]. The next day, her haemoglobin decreased to 7.1 g/dL. Therefore, she received one unit of packed RBCs. Her haemoglobin then remained stable for days prior to the discharge.
