Abstract 

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are widely used to prevent and treat arterial and venous thrombosis. Bleeding is the major complication of DOAC therapy and can be associated with significant short-term mortality. Although DOACs have short half-lives, rapid reversal of anticoagulant effect may be beneficial in the setting of emergencies such as bleeding or urgent surgery. Using a case-based approach, this presentation will review the burden of DOAC-related bleeding including a critical discussion of the evidence for reversal and/or hemostatic therapies. Ongoing research addressing restarting anticoagulation after bleeding will also be discussed.
