Abstract

Thromboembolic complications are the most serious consequences of atrial fibrillation. According to the applicable guidelines for stroke prevention, patient at high risk of thromboembolic complications should receive oral anticoagulants provided that there are no contraindications. Decisions over anticoagulation need to be tailored to the individual, especially in patients with high risk of bleeding.
