Extended-duration thromboprophylaxis with betrixaban reduces the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) without increasing major bleeding rates in acutely ill medical patients as compared to standard duration enoxaparin. We aimed to assess the risk-benefit of betrixaban in patients aged ≥80 years enrolled in the APEX trial.
