The increased risk of stroke associated with atrial fibrillation (AF) is often managed through the long-term use of oral anticoagulation. A significant proportion of patients with AF also present with concomitant acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and/or require percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), necessitating use of antiplatelet therapy to prevent coronary thrombosis. This represents a major clinical conundrum, which will be examined extensively in the following e-learning modules.

Learn more about the clinical dilemma that arises when treating patients with atrial fibrillation who present with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and/or require percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). What are the limitations of the antithrombotic strategies currently recommended for the treatment of this group of patients and how are these being addressed?  

Find out how the antithrombotic strategies currently recommended for this group of patients might be falling short.

Using a unique study design, the AUGUSTUS trial addressed two of the most important unanswered questions regarding the treatment of patients with atrial fibrillation who present with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and/or require percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In this interactive module, discover how insights from this study could bring us one step closer to optimisation of antithrombotic strategies in this challenging group of patients.
