Focus on

Learning objectives

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Increase understanding of risk and complications that concern patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who has concomitant diabetes (It is more than a ‘1’ score in CHADS2-VAsc) by focusing on the evidence that points out that diabetes is an independent risk factor for AF, together with: worse AF symptoms, lower quality of life, higher mortality and hospitalization rates;
  • Explain the increased cerebrovascular and cardiovascular complications of this cooccurrence and discuss the evidence related to anticoagulation in terms of mortality and morbidity by translating evidence from diabetic subgroups of pivotal NOAC trials as well as observational studies of oral anticoagulants, focusing on, stroke and systemic embolism and management of anticoagulation, Cardiovascular mortality, Major adverse cardiovascular and limb events; and
  • Explore not only macrovascular but also microvascular complications of diabetes, particularly kidney disease, and clinical implications of having concomitant CKD under anticoagulation therapy by explaining underlying mechanisms, risks and optimal management of patients who have or are under risk of developing kidney disease, with these three subtopics: Diabetic nephropathy, anticoagulation related nephropathy and vascular calcification theory.
