Taking NSAIDs May Raise Risk of A-Fib
A recent study published in
suggests that taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications raises the risk of atrial fibrillation.
Management of Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation and Acute Venous Thromboembolism with Novel Oral Anticoagulants
Although they offer an alternative to warfarin for preventing stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation, effective use of the new anticoagulants requires careful patient selection.
Clinical Pearls for Managing Atrial Fibrillation
Mitigating the risk of stroke, heart failure, and death when treating patients with atrial fibrillation requires a careful consideration of patient characteristics and management options.
NSAIDs May Increase Risk of Atrial Fibrillation in Older Patients
Usage of prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may increase the risk of atrial fibrillation in older patients, according to the results of a long-term study.
NSAID Use Linked to Increased Risk of Atrial Fibrillation
In elderly adults, current and recent non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug use is associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation, according to a study published online April 8 in
