Periinterventionelle Antikoagulation bei der Vorhofflimmerablation
29 September 2016 (online)
Ablation of atrial fibrillation is associated with a significant risk of thromboembolism and bleeding. Whereas continuous application of vitamin K antagonists seem to be feasible, the increasing use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOAKs) in patients with atrial fibrillation moves this topic in a novel focus for interventional electrophysiologists. The article describes current use of oral anticoagulants for atrial fibrillation ablation.
