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.
