Suggested in-hospital anticoagulation management in patients with mechanical heart valves according to RETRACE analyses [26]. After initial reversal OAC should not be resumed before day 6 after ICH due to increased hazard for the composite of both thromboembolic and hemorrhagic complications. The hazard for hemorrhagic complications remained significantly increased until day 13. Suggested timeframes should be interpreted with respect to the patient’s individual thromboembolic and hemorrhagic risk. Figure modified after Kuramatsu et al., European Heart Journal 2018 [26]. Abbreviations: CI confidence interval, ICH intracerebral hemorrhage, OAC oral anticoagulation
