Antiplatelet therapy (APT) use in combination with oral anticoagulation is common among patients with atrial fibrillation, but there is scarce information regarding its effect on outcomes in patients on non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOAC). We aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of APT use in a 'real-world' cohort of nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients initiating NOAC.

A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
Therapy with two or more separate preparations given for a combined effect.
Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.
