- Purpose: We aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of rivaroxaban in thromboprophylaxis compared with those of aspirin in real-world patients who underwent hip arthroplasty using nationwide claims data. Methods: Patients aged more than or equal to 18years with at least one hip arthroplasty including total and partial hip replacements and hip replacement revisions during July 2009 to June 2013 were identified from the Health Insurance Review and Assessment (HIRA) database. The study outcome was incidence rate of thromboembolic events and anticoagulation-related major bleeding within 90days of hip arthroplasty. Results: The incidence of overall venous thromboembolism (VTE) within 90-day postsurgery was significantly higher in the aspirin cohort than it was in the rivaroxaban cohorts. Bleeding events associated with pharmacological thromboprophylaxis in patients who received rivaroxaban were not significantly different from that in aspirin-treated patients. In aspirin cohorts, 65.7% of patients received less than 3-week treatment while about half received a less than 14-day treatment, and 31.7% received more than 3-week treatment in the rivaroxaban cohort. Conclusions: This study demonstrates that rivaroxaban was more effective in preventing VTE following hip arthroplasty without raising bleeding risks in clinical settings. Age more than or equal to 80years, women, and a history of thromboembolism were the risk factors of VTE incidence.
