Overview

In this virtual roundtable, our expert panel reflect on the clinical trials and real world data supporting the use of NOACs in atrial fibrillation – almost ten years since they entered the clinic.

Moderated by Prof John Eikelboom, the panel offer their analyses via a series of presentations and discussions covering a range of topics, with a special focus on their use in Japan.

This activity has been supported via an educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim

Learning Objectives

  • Identify which individuals with atrial fibrillation should be initiated on NOAC therapy without delay
  • Interpret safety and cardiovascular data from RCTs in the context of real-world experience
  • Select appropriate treatment strategies with NOACs in atrial fibrillation patients in need of further ablation or intervention
  • Review the reversal options open to individuals experiencing a bleeding event whilst on treatment with a NOAC

Target Audience

  • Cardiologists
  • Interventional Cardiologists
