Recommendations for prevention of thromboembolism in non-valvular AF

ESC Guidelines AF, EHJ 2012


Summary

Summary

  • Few patients have true contraindications to anticoagulant therapy

  • ASA vs. placebo

    • Modest reduction in thromboembolic events

    • Modest increase in bleeding

  • ASA + clopidogrel vs. ASA

    • Reduces thromboembolic events

    • Increases bleeding

  • Apixaban is a potentially attractive alternative in patients with VKA contraindications
