1.  Odontostomatologic management of patients receiving oral anticoagulant therapy: a retrospective multicentric study 
Introduction
Today, we frequently find patients taking oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT), a prophylaxis against the occurrence of thromboembolic events. An oral surgeon needs to know how to better manage such patients, in order to avoid hemorrhagic and thromboembolic complications.
Materials and methods
A group of 193 patients (119 men aged between 46 and 82 and 74 women aged between 54 and 76) undergoing OAT for more than 5 years were managed with a standardized management protocol and a 2-months follow-up. The aim of the present study was to apply a protocol, which could provide a safe intra- and postoperative management of patients on OAT.
Results
Among the 193 patients, only 2 had postoperative complications.
Conclusions
We think that the protocol used in the present study can be used for complete safety in the treatment of this type of patients.
