Join Dr Hugh Calkins for a discussion of his groundbreaking paper: Uninterrupted Dabigatran versus Warfarin for Ablation in Atrial Fibrillation.
Catheter ablation is an antiarrhythmic surgical technique used in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. Typically, it is performed with uninterrupted anticoagulation with warfarin, or interruption of a NOAC course for a period before and following surgery. However, the results of this new study indicate that an uninterrupted course of NOACs may, in fact, be safer than other anticoagulant courses.
This educational activity is designed for cardiologists, surgeons, primary care physicians, GPs, nurses and any other healthcare professional with an interest or role in atrial fibrillation management.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
