Day 1 Session 2: Preventing afib strokes with medications and devices

Recommended Posts


People living with afib are more likely to have a stroke than those without it. That’s why we dedicate an entire session to stroke prevention at the Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.® Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference! 

During the second session Friday morning, Dr. Andrea Russo will cover Medications for Preventing Afib Strokes, in which she will take a deep dive into anticoagulants: what they are, who needs them, how much afib is needed to require one, how to choose the right one, reversal agents, the REACT-AF Trial of pill-in-the-pocket anticoagulants, the new Factor XI anticoagulants in trials (with the potential of stroke prevention without bleeding), and more.

In Dr. Devi Nair’s presentation, Devices for Preventing Strokes, she will share about the role of the left atrial appendage (LAA), what LAA occlusion is and who it is for, when to choose LAA occlusion, device options, how it is done, and more.

Following their talks, we will have a Q&A with Drs. Russo and Nair.

Based on what we hear from folks who attend our conferences, fear of having a stroke is a major contributor to the stress and anxiety of living with afib. We hope this session will give you some peace of mind, knowing you have options to reduce your risk.
