One-Year Data From Global Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Registry Show Antithrombotic Agents Not Optimally Used to Prevent Stroke
Date:9/3/2013

>AF patients with CAD had more than twice the risk for ACS than non-CAD patients (HR 2.49, p=0.016) but a comparable risk of death, stroke/SE and major bleeds

  • Lower rate of VKA usage in patients with paroxysmal AF vs. permanent AF despite a comparable level of stroke and systemic embolism risk
    • 24.4% (n=1,348) of study patients had paroxysmal AF vs. 14.2% (n=785) with permanent AF
    • VKAs, alone or in combination with AP, were used in 39.1% of paroxysmal AF patients and 61.0% of permanent AF patients
    • Risk of death was 38% lower in patients with paroxysmal vs. permanent AF (HR 0.62, p=0.057)
    • Stroke/systemic embolism risk was similar in both patient groups (HR=1.18, p=0.72)

  • Lower stroke risk and less frequent use of anticoagulants in newly diagnosed AF patients from Asia vs. Europe
    • 28.7% (n=1,587) of patients were enrolled in Asia and 58.6% (n=3,237) were enrolled in Europe
    • Patients in Asia were, on average, more likely to be male, younger, have a lower body mass index and have fewer comorbidities than those in Europe
    • Regardless of risk level, VKA usage was significantly higher in Europe (61.4%) vs. Asia (35.8%), highlighting substantial differences in the use of available stroke-prevention therapies  

  • Less frequent use of VKAs among patients with new vs. permanent AF, though a similar rate of death and stroke between the two groups
    • 44.8% (n=2,477) of patients had new AF vs. 14.2% (n=785) with permanent AF 
    • Use of VKAs, alone or in combination with A
