Radiofrequency catheter ablation is being used with increasing frequency as a strategy to manage atrial fibrillation. Patients undergoing this procedure are at increased short-term risk of thromboembolism for several days and up to 4 weeks or longer after their ablation, and anticoagulation management surrounding the ablation procedure remains controversial. Although no conclusive recommendations can be made, published guidelines and data support therapeutic anticoagulation with warfarin for 3… CONTINUE READING
