Atrial Fibrillation

New research suggests that most patients who have suffered a stroke can be taught to reliably detect the first signs of atrial fibrillation by measuring their peripheral pulse at the radial artery.
Research suggests that patients who develop seemingly temporary cases of atrial fibrillation immediately after most types of surgery are dramatically more likely to suffer subsequent strokes.
Eliquis is also now indicated for reducing the risk of recurrent DVT and PE following initial therapy.
Greater physical activity is associated with lower rates of incident atrial fibrillation in women, according to a study published online Aug. 20 in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
New research finds that people with atrial fibrillation (AF) who undergo radiofrequency ablation and maintain sinus rhythm are less likely than those who opt against the procedure to die of heart attack or heart failure.
Analysis of more than 5,000 successful electrical cardioversions performed without anticoagulation suggests that patients and doctors must act fast to minimize the chances that acute atrial fibrillation will lead to thromboembolic events.
