I have a/an Core Valve Evolut R Transcatheter Arotic Heart
I would explain as follows
Welcome and thank you for being on 'Ask A Doctor' service!
Regarding your concern, I would explain that Eliquis cannot be used in patients with mechanical heart valves like you, as there are not enough data evidence-based studies to support its efficacy in these patients.
The only approved drug which can really help prevent possible embolic events is Warfarin although it may impose you at high risk for bleeding considering your age.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Let me know if I can assist you further.
