The novel biomarker-based risk score in Atrial Fibrillation: GDF-15 and ABC risk score
Atrial Fibrillation is associated with a 5-fold increased risk of stroke and thus stroke prevention is the fundamental part of management of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) patients. The choice of antithrombotic therapy for AF patients need to balance the risk of stroke against major bleeding.
Compared with non-Asians, the incidence of AF-related risks of stroke and bleeding in Asians is generally higher. By attending this webinar, you will have better knowledge and competence on:
