Introduction to Atrial Fibrillation & Stroke
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major risk factor for stroke, and the number of AF-patients is anticipated to rise dramatically in the next decades. Oral anticoagulation using vitamin-K antagonists (VKA) is beneficial for primary stroke prevention in AF-patients, but the long-term use of VKA has its limitations. Recently, a new class of modern oral anticoagulants has entered the field and may potentially change the management of stroke risk in AF.
