What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

For further information on Trip click on any of the questions/sections on the left-hand side of this page. But if you still have questions please contact us via jon.brassey@tripdatabase.com

Stroke occurs due to a blood clot in an artery in the brain or after a haemorrhage where a blood vessel has ruptured. The former is referred to as ischemic stroke and the latter as cerebral haemorrhage. Early mobilization is the best treatment to prevent deep vein thrombosis. When this is not feasible, prophylactic anticoagulant medicines are given, but must be used with caution in cerebral haemorrhages or massiveischemic strokes. Thus, for some patient

of cerebrovascular accident (CVA) remains uncertain. We investigated the association between pAF and long-term risk of CVA by performing a post hoc analysis of 10-year outcomes of the ART (Arterial Revascularization Trial). Methods: For the present analysis, among patients enrolled in the ART (n=3102), we excluded those who did not undergo surgery (n=25), had a history of atrial fibrillation (n=45), or had no information on the incidence of pAF (n=9). The final population consisted of 3023 patients, of whom 734 (...) excluded from the analysis (hazard ratio, 1.47 [95% 1.02-2.11]; P =0.04). Conclusions: Patients with pAF after coronary artery bypass grafting are at higher risk of CVA. These findings challenge the notion that pAF is a benign complication.
