The prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) is high in hemodialysis (HD) patients. It was suggested that oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT), the choice treatment for reducing the thromboembolic risk in AF patients, increases the incidence of both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes in the HD population. Moreover, the therapy-related bleeding risk is particularly high in these patients. For these reasons there is no agreement on the use of OAT in HD patients with AF. The aim of this study was to evaluate the criteria adopted by nephrologists in prescribing OAT in HD patients with AF.

Abstract

The prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) is high in hemodialysis (HD) patients. It was suggested that oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT), the choice treatment for reducing the thromboembolic risk in AF patients, increases the incidence of both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes in the HD population. Moreover, the therapy-related bleeding risk is particularly high in these patients. For these reasons there is no agreement on the use of OAT in HD patients with AF. The aim of this study was to evaluate the criteria adopted by nephrologists in prescribing OAT in HD patients with AF.
