Session Details

Overcoming the dilemma of stroke versus bleeding in non-valvular atrial fibrillation: can we optimise patient care with oral factor Xa inhibition
Sun 31 Aug 18:30 - 20:00 Atrial fibrillation (AF) Satellite Symposium Athens - Village 4
Chairpersons: Gilles MONTALESCOT (Paris, France), Hector BUENO (Madrid, Spain)
Subtitle: Sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer Alliance
Learning Objectives: To understand clinical evidence for oral factor Xa inhibition in terms of thrombotic events and bleeding risk in atrial fibrillation To learn about the clinical use of factor Xa inhibitors in the management of different patients with atrial fibrillation and in different clinical situations To understand the clinical management gaps for stroke prevention in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation across the patient spectrum
