Association Between Treatment With Apixaban, Dabigatran, Rivaroxaban, or Warfarin and Risk for Osteoporotic Fractures Among Patients With Atrial Fibrillation

Population-based cohort study (n=23,515, Hong Kong) reports among AF patients, DOAC use may result in lower risk for osteoporotic fracture vs. warfarin at 24-month follow-up, and risk does not seem to be altered by choice of DOAC. Findings may be limited by residual confounding.
