Oral anticoagulants are frequently used in clinical practice. The most important complication of oral anticoagulation is major bleeding. The incidence of major bleeding is about 2-3%/year in randomized controlled trials but may be considerably higher under real life conditions. Major bleeding risk in patients receiving oral anticoagulants depends on factors related to anticoagulation itself (intensity and quality), patient-related factors (demographic characteristics and comorbid diseases), and concomitant treatments with antiplatelet or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The role of clinical prediction rules for major bleeding is discussed.
