Anticoagulants versus antiplatelet drugs for cervical artery dissection: case for anticoagulants

Journal of neural transmission (Vienna, Austria : 1996) | 15 Dec 2012

JW Norris
Abstract
There are no reliable data from randomised trials to decide whether anticoagulants or antiplatelet agents are better to prevent further thromboembolic events after cervical arterial dissection. Most neurologists favour anticoagulants based on the underlying pathology and the likely course of acute post-dissection thromboembolism.
