Patients whose hearts need electrical assistance to sync the atria and ventricles now have another option.
Atrial Fibrillation (Afib)
It’s important to determine whether stroke patients also experience atrial fibrillation (Afib).
A new paper identifies strategies that providers might use to help their patients better balance the risks and benefits of anticoagulants.
A new study finds patients were taking too many antithrombotics for no reason, leading to a significant increase in bleeding events.
Anticoagulant therapy is important for stroke prevention in people with atrial fibrillation, but a new study shows many people don’t stick with it.
For Afib patients, lowering the risk of stroke is crucial. A late-breaking trial presented at AHA Scientific Sessions compares anti-thrombotic agents when coronary disease is also a factor.
