Antithrombotic Therapy for Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation

“ To this variety of apoplexy those are most liable who lead an idle life, who are obese, whose face and hands are constantly livid and whose pulse constantly unequal.” Wepfer, 1658

Thromboembolic Events Control Patients in AF Trials Cerebral 49 (91%) Systemic 5 (9%)

Risk Factors for Stroke and Efficacy of Antithrombotic Therapy in Atrial Fibrillation Archives of Internal Medicine July 11, 1994

Predicting Stroke Risk in AF—Who Benefits Most? Multivariate Analysis of Pooled Data Clinical risk factors Relative risk Previous stroke or TIA 2.5 x History of hypertension 1.6 x Diabetes 1.7 x Increasing age (per decade) 1.4 x Adapted from Arch Intern Med 1994; 154:1454

Transthoracic Echocardiographic Predictors of Stroke in Patients with AF Atrial Fibrillation Investigators Combined databases from 3 randomized trials (N=1,066) Moderate to severe LV dysfunction was the only independent predictor of stroke (RR 2.5, p<0.001) Left atrial size did not predict stroke risk

Prior stroke, TIA, systemic embolism

Hypertension

Moderate or severely impaired LV systolic function and / or CHF

Age >75 years

Rheumatic mitral valve disease

Prosthetic heart valves

Diabetes mellitus

Age 65-75

ACCP 2004 Recommendations for Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation* Risk Factors Recommended Therapy Any High Risk Factor Warfarin (target INR 2.5, range 2.0-3.0)** Age 65-75 years and Aspirin 325 mg qd No high risk factors or Warfarin (target INR 2.5, range 2.0-3.0)** No Risk Factors and age < 65 Aspirin 325 mg qd *Applies to persistent (sustained or permanent) and paroxysmal (intermittent) AF **target INR > 2.5 for patients with mechanical heart valves

ACCP Recommendations 2004 Cardioversion Continuation of anticoagulation beyond 4 weeks after successful pharmacological or electrical cardioversion is based on whether the patient has experienced more than 1 episode of AF and on their risk factor status. Patients experiencing more than 1 episode of AF should be considered as having paroxysmal AF

Continuation of anticoagulation beyond 4 weeks after successful pharmacological or electrical cardioversion is based on whether the patient has experienced more than 1 episode of AF and on their risk factor status.

Patients experiencing more than 1 episode of AF should be considered as having paroxysmal AF

Conclusions Fixed oral dosing without coagulation monitoring Effectiveness non-inferior to well-controlled warfarin in preventing stroke and systemic embolic events Less bleeding than warfarin Elevated liver enzymes in ~6% of patients A promising treatment option for prevention of thromboembolism In high-risk patients with atrial fibrillation, ximelagatran offers:

Fixed oral dosing without coagulation monitoring

Effectiveness non-inferior to well-controlled warfarin in preventing stroke and systemic embolic events

Less bleeding than warfarin

Elevated liver enzymes in ~6% of patients

A promising treatment option for prevention of thromboembolism
