One-quarter of high risk patients denied anticoagulation after AF ablation
Date:2/18/2014

Sophia Antipolis, 18 February 2014: One-quarter of high risk patients do not receive anticoagulants after ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF), according to the latest survey of European practice.

The EORP Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Pilot Study, conducted by the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), reveals that 65% of patients were taking anticoagulants one year after ablation of AF.1 But up to 25% of patients at high risk of stroke (defined as a CHA2DS2-VASc score >1) were not taking any anticoagulant drug. And around half of patients with a low stroke risk (CHA2DS2-VASc score of 0) were still anticoagulated one year after the procedure.

Study author Professor Josep Brugada, Hospital Clinic, University of Barcelona, said: "Our pilot study was in medium to high volume AF ablation centres and we would expect them to be following anticoagulation protocols. But often the follow-up is performed by a GP or general cardiologist at another centre. Good collaboration between the two centres is absolutely mandatory to ensure that patients received recommended treatments."

This was a prospective, observational registry of consecutive patients undergoing a first AF ablation procedure in 10 European countries. It included 1 410 patients from 72 cardiology centres with medium to high expertise (defined as performing >50 AF ablations per year). The current analysis of one-year follow-up data is published in European Heart Journal.2 It provides a contemporary picture of European AF ablation success and complication rates, and how centres assess success of the procedure.

The study found that catheter ablation of AF maintained sinus rhythm in 74% of patients overall. Success without antiarrhythmic drugs was achieved in 41% of patients. When post-ablation atrial flutter/tachycardia were excluded, complications occurred in 2.5% of patients and fewer than 1% were considered major. While 9
