Can you provide clarification and recommendations for patients requiring endoscopy who are on NOACs?

This question is really about which patients should cease and which patients should continue all forms of anti-coagulation prior to endoscopic procedures. The answer will depend on the individual patient, the reason the anti-coagulant or anti-platelet agent is administered and the nature and risks of the procedure contemplated.
