Abstract

Oral anticoagulants are effective at preventing strokes in patients who have atrial fibrillation without significantly increasing hemorrhage. The more risk factors for stroke that a patient has along with atrial fibrillation the more benefit from oral anticoagulants. The benefit of stroke prevention needs to be weighed against risk of hemorrhage, life style change, medical monitoring, and cost.
