alternatives to warfarin to prevent ischemic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF)

There has been lots of research into alternatives to warfarin to prevent ischemic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF)...but so far none have panned out.

Patients with AF have a higher risk of stroke...blood clots are more likely to form when the heart isn't beating efficiently.

The risk is highest in patients over age 75, or those with diabetes, hypertension, congestive heart failure, or a prior stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA).
