Posted Jul 19 2012 10:00am
The Atrial Fibrillation Optimal Treatment Task Force, led by the Alliance for Aging Research, has just released a consensus statement developed by a group of leading afib stroke prevention experts. We at StopAfib.org are proud to have been part of the development of this consensus statement, which recommends a process for assessing afib stroke and bleeding risk to ensure that patients get appropriate anticoagulation. Importantly, aspirin was not recommended for atrial fibrillation stroke prevention.
