OBJECTIVE: Many radiologists are unfamiliar with the new antithrombogenic medications and how to modify patient management before nonvascular percutaneous procedures performed in a radiology department. In this article, we review the indications for use, mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, dosing, and recommendations for periprocedural management of patients using these medications. CONCLUSION: To improve patient safety, radiologists involved in percutaneous procedures should have knowledge of the antithrombotics that will be encountered routinely in clinical practice.
