Anticoagulation in atrial fibrillation is paramount to protect patients from the devastating consequences of stroke. It is important, however, to balance an individual patient's risk of stroke from AF and the potential for serious bleeding with anticoagulation therapy. With the availability of several new factor-specific anticoagulants, physicians now have expanded options for selecting the appropriate agent for an individual patient. There remain, however, many important questions and concerns regarding the incorporation and management of these agents into routine clinical practice. In this focused and unique clinically oriented book, the authors - experienced experts in cardiology, arrhythmias and anticoagulation - provide evidence based guidance to commonly encountered questions that arise in the man-agement of patients with AF. The information is presented in a problem-oriented focused way, with specific attention to daily clinical practice.
