Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about the symptoms. I just came online to see that you have been waiting for some time so ill quickly answer this question for you. Actually, Eliquis can be used to manage the anticoagulation which is necessary after mitral valve replacement. in fact, studies show that this is a much better option when compared to warfarin as this does not require monitoring on a regular basis and the incidence of side effects with Eliquis is much lower than more traditional anticoagulants like warfarin.

So in short YES mitral valve replacement as well as post repair, Eliquis is a good choice. Now if this patient is experiencing spontaneous bruising while being on eliquis then she needs to be evaluated as soon as possible in order to determine where the dose needs to be adjusted or not.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
