Program Name The Symposium on Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation Advancement in Novel Oral Anticoagulation Therapy and LAA Closure
The activity has been developed to enhance the global clinician community about advancements in novel oral anticoagulation therapy and non-pharmacoloigcal options for managing stroke in AF patients. A need exists to evaluate current limitations in traditional therapy, and assess emerging therapeutic approaches in NOAC therapy and adjudicative interventional approaches for the management of systemic thromboembolism. AF is an independent predictor of stroke, with an annual risk that is 5 to 6 times higher than patients in sinus rhythm. However, this risk is not homogeneous, ranging from an annual risk of 1% in patients aged over 65 years old with no risk factors, to over 12% per year in patients who have a history of prior stroke, transient ischemic attack. Not only is AF a major risk factor for stroke, but when strokes occur in association with AF, the patients suffer substantial mortality, morbidity, disability and longer hospital stays compared with stroke patients without AF. The benefits of thromboprophylaxis in patients with AF are well established in randomized trials, and most guidelines recommend the use of anticoagulation with warfarin for highrisk patients. However, there continues to be wide variation in management. In particular, the elderly are at the highest risk of stroke, and would benefit most from thromboprophylaxis. However, the elderly have more comorbidities and concomitant therapies that may preclude anticoagulant therapy. Also, most of the evidence on thromboprophylaxis has been based on hospital-managed populations. While Warfarin reduces the risk of stroke in patients with AF, it increases the risk of hemorrhage and is difficult to use, consequently, the emerging of novel oral anticoagulation therapy is a promising paradigm shift in standard of care. An activity has been developed to improve professional competence, performance, and patient outcomes in the management of stroke in AF patients.
