Join Dr Hugh Calkins for a discussion of his groundbreaking paper: Uninterrupted Dabigatran versus Warfarin for Ablation in Atrial Fibrillation.
You can recap the learnings of this journal club by reading the short, comprehensive highlights report which details the key findings of the discussion.
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.
