Association of Cancer History With Prevalence of Cardiology Involvement and Anticoagulant Prescription Fills in Patients With Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation
MarketScan between 2009 and 2014 (n = 388,045). Cardiology involvement (A) was less likely to occur among patients with history of cancer than those without (relative risk: 0.92; 95% confidence interval: 0.91 to 0.93), and similar differences were observed for cancers of the colon, lung, pancreas, and hematologic system. Anticoagulant prescription fills (B) were less likely among patients with history of cancer than those without cancer (relative risk: 0.89; 95% confidence interval: 0.88 to 0.90), and similar results were observed for cancers of the colon, lung, pancreas, prostate, and hematologic system. *p < 0.05.
