Balance Risks and Benefits of Antithrombotic Combos in Atrial Fib

Antithrombotic combos for patients with atrial fib PLUS a coronary stent are a moving target...due to evolving evidence and stent technology.

The standard used to be "triple therapy" anticoagulant (warfarin, etc) plus TWO antiplatelets (aspirin and clopidogrel, etc).

Expect a shift toward DUAL therapy at discharge. Most atrial fib patients will get TRIPLE therapy right after stent placement.
