Participants will learn how to translate theoretical information deriving from recently completed trials of new anticoagulants in atrial fibrillation and from the recently revised 2012 ESC Atrial Fibrillation Guidelines into clinical practice.
Two challenging cases of atrial fibrillation management will be presented. Interactive discussion with the audience will lead the participant to logically choose the best treatment options for the cases. Pros and Cons of the available choices will be discussed.
