They also recommend that consideration be given to other supplements or drugs (e.g., fish oil, antiplatelet agents) patients may be taking or comorbid conditions patients may have that increase bleeding risk.
Accelerated approval for idarucizumab was based on interim analysis of the Re-VERSE AD trial.

It is approved for patients treated with dabigatran when reversal of the anticoagulant effects are needed for emergency surgery or urgent procedures, or in the event of life-threatening or uncontrolled bleeding.Perioperative management of anticoagulation entails an understanding of all thromboembolic events, indications for treatment, and duration of treatment.
N-acetylcysteine is known to impair hemostasis when used for the prevention of perioperative inflammation and ischemia-reperfusion injury.When considering noncardiac surgery, these factors and the need to weigh the risk of hemorrhage against that of thromboembolism must be analyzed on an individual patient basis.
In patients with a bare metal coronary stent who require surgery within 6 weeks of stent placement, the ACCP recommends to continue.After an acute episode of venous thromboembolism (VTE), defer surgery, if feasible, until patients have received at least 1 month, and preferably 3 months, of anticoagulation.
In patients with a drug-eluting coronary stent who require surgery within 12 months of stent placement, continuing aspirin and clopidogrel in the perioperative period is also recommended.Investigators found that, among 39 patients who had been receiving dabigatran and required an urgent procedure were then given idarucizumab, 36 underwent their urgent procedure—with 33 (92%) having normal hemostasis during the event.
Dental management of patients using antithrombotic drugs: critical appraisal of existing guidelines.Substitute intravenous heparin infusion for oral anticoagulant therapy preoperatively to prevent thromboembolic complications in the perioperative period.Postoperatively, the heparin can be restarted when the surgeon agrees that it is safe, usually 6-12 hours postoperatively.The risks of stopping or reducing these medication regimens (i.e., thromboembolism, stroke, MI) far outweigh the consequences of prolonged bleeding, which can be controlled with local measures.
