Explore the Efficacy and Safety of Once-daily Oral Rivaroxaban for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Events in Subjects With Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation Scheduled for Cardioversion (X-VERT)
A study for patients with abnormal heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation) who need to undergo cardioversion (procedure to restore normal heart rhythm). The study will compare patients assigned randomly (like flipping a coin) to either Rivaroxaban or vitamin K antagonist (VKA). The study will measure common medical outcomes for this type of patient such as bleeding and stroke.
