New Anticoagulants for Stroke Prophylaxis in Patients with Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation
This educational module discusses the clinical impact of atrial fibrillation (AF), provides a review of the data evaluating the use of warfarin, and details new data evaluating the use of the new oral direct thrombin inhibitor (DTI) and 2 direct Factor Xa inhibitors (DFXaIs)as stroke prophylaxis in patients with nonvalvular AF. The pharmacology of these new agents and their advantages and disadvantages when compared to warfarin is also discussed.
The University of Virginia School of Medicine designates this enduring material for a maximum of 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
