研究成果: Review article査読

抄録

Atrial fibrillation (AF) and coronary artery disease (CAD) can be comorbid with each other, because they can develop based on common risk factors such as aging, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and obesity. The management for stroke prevention in patients with AF and CAD needs some cautions. The vascular disease including CAD has been approved as one of the risk developing stroke in the CHA2DS2-VASc score for patients with AF. Patients with AF and CAD often should take antiplatelet and anticoagulant and sometimes take double antiplatelets and anticoagulant, which associates with increased bleeding risk. On terms of the management of AF, the medications of the rhythm control therapy for the AF would be limited if a patient has CAD. A K channel blocker would be selected for the 1st line therapy.
