Guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation: the Task Force for the Management of Atrial Fibrillation of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
Guidelines summarize and evaluate all currently available evidence on a particular issue with the aim of assisting physicians in selecting the best management strategy for an individual patient
Refining clinical risk stratification for predicting stroke and thromboembolism in atrial fibrillation using a novel risk factor-based approach: the euro heart survey on atrial fibrillation.
TLDR
A novel, simple stroke risk stratification schema, based on a risk factor approach, provides some improvement in predictive value for TE over the CHADS(2) schema, with low event rates in low-risk subjects and the classification of only a small proportion of subjects into the intermediate-risk category.
2016 ESC Guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation developed in collaboration with EACTS.
TLDR
The Task Force for the management of atrial fibrillation of the European Society of Cardiology has been endorsed by the European Stroke Organisation (ESO).
2007 Guidelines for the management of arterial hypertension: The Task Force for the Management of Arterial Hypertension of the European Society of Hypertension (ESH) and of the European Society of
TLDR
Since 2003 considerable additional evidence on important issues related to diagnostic and treatment approaches to hypertension has become available and therefore updating of the previous guidelines has been found advisable.
Guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation: the Task Force for the Management of Atrial Fibrillation of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
TLDR
Estimates of expected health outcomes for larger societies are included, where data exist, and the level of evidence and the strength of recommendation of particular treatment options are weighed and graded according to pre-defined scales.
2016 ESC Guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation developed in collaboration with EACTS.
Authors/Task Force Members: Paulus Kirchhof* (Chairperson) (UK/Germany) Stefano Benussi* (Co-Chairperson) (Switzerland), Dipak Kotecha (UK), Anders Ahlsson (Sweden), Dan Atar (Norway), Barbara
A novel user-friendly score (HAS-BLED) to assess 1-year risk of major bleeding in patients with atrial fibrillation: the Euro Heart Survey.
TLDR
This simple, novel bleeding risk score (HAS-BLED) provides a practical tool to assess the individual bleeding risk of real-world patients withAF, potentially supporting clinical decision making regarding antithrombotic therapy in patients with AF.
2012 focused update of the ESC Guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation: an update of the 2010 ESC Guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation--developed with the special
TLDR
An update of the 2010 ESC Guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation with the special contribution of the European Heart Rhythm Association is developed.
