Assessing the Appropriateness of Oral Anticoagulation for Atrial Fibrillation in Advanced Frailty: Use of Stroke and Bleeding Risk-Prediction Models.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is common among frail older adults. Oral anticoagulation (OAC) is particularly challenging for these due to overlapping stroke and bleeding risk factor profiles. OBJECTIVE To compare the utility of stroke and haemorrhage risk-prediction instruments in the treatment of AF among frail older adults. DESIGN Cross… (More)
