Discussion In this trial, both edoxaban regimens were noninferior to well-managed warfarin for preventing stroke or systemic embolic event; the high-dosage edoxaban regimen tended to become more effective than warfarin. The price of ischemic stroke was similar with high-dosage edoxaban and warfarin but was higher with the low-dose edoxaban regimen. The incidence of hemorrhagic stroke and the death rate from cardiovascular causes were significantly lower with both edoxaban regimens than with warfarin. As compared with warfarin, edoxaban was connected with consistently lower, dose-related rates of all types of bleeding, including major bleeding, intracranial bleeding, and life-threatening bleeding.
