Professor Storey answered questions around the unmet need that still exists for patients with atrial fibrillation and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and the changing treatment landscape. He also gave us his opinion on the current US and European guidelines and advice for interpreting real world data.

Nomenclature: DOACs are also known as novel or non-vitamin K anticoagulants (NOAC). However, there is a possibility that a healthcare professional might mistake NOAC for ‘no anticoagulants’ with potentially serious or even life-threatening consequences. NOACs are referred to in the expert opinion videos.
