Because atrial fibrillation promotes the formation of blood clots that can travel to the brain and block an artery, atrial fibrillation independently increases the risk of ischemic stroke four-to-five-fold. In this issue expert authors review drug therapies for stroke prevention, use of the new anticoagulants, ablation strategies for stroke prevention, LAA closure for stroke prevention, stroke in heart rhythm device patients, transesophageal echo in atrial fibrillation, and other topics important to the management of this serious complication.

"A comprehensive and well-referenced source of evolving information, clinical trials and their implications." Reviewed by Perfusion, Apr 2015

Published Reviews

"This book would be of particular value to cardiologists and stroke physicians. However, to a cardiac surgical trainee, it does serve to stress the importance of timely detection and appropriate management of postoperative atrial fibrillation, given its potentially devastating effects. Overall, this book is an important source of knowledge and contains a wealth of relevant references to guide readers who seek more information." Reviewed by Perfusion, Apr 2015
