Xarelto®: Simple, Uncomplicated Clot Prevention

Xarelto® is indicated for the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in adult patients undergoing elective hip or knee replacement surgery.1

Health economics

Thromboprophylaxis with Xarelto® compared to enoxaparin can result in significant cost savings per patient, with marked cost savings for health care systems.13

Superior efficacy in clot prevention compared to enoxaparin, with comparable safety

The RECORD programme found Xarelto® to offer superior efficacy with a similar and low level of bleeding compared to enoxaparin in preventing VTE in adult patients undergoing elective hip or knee replacement surgery.2, 3, 4

Reassuring and comparable safety

In the RECORD programme each separate study found Xarelto® to have a reassuring safety profile in a wide range of patients, with data comparable to that of enoxaparin.2, 3, 4
