Abstract: A poster presentation regarding aspirin and novel oral anticoagulants: reporting of adverse drug reactions. Introduction: Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) result in approximately 200,000 deaths per year and contribute to about 5% of all hospital admissions, in Europe. The efficacy of antithrombotic medications such as aspirin may vary between patients and alternative medications need to be identified. Novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) provide alternative options for thromboprophylaxis. Aims: • To conduct a comparative analysis of ADRs reported for aspirin and ADRs reported for the NOACs as documented in pharmacovigilance (PV) reports. • To observe ADRs following the use of aspirin and NOACs in the Maltese population and compare them to ADRs from PV reports. • To identify studies on the use of NOACs in PAD. • To analyse consumption trends for NOACs.
