ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examined whether the Anticoagulation and Risk Factors in Atrial Fibrillation (ATRIA) score predicts risk for warfarin-associated hemorrhage in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Incidence of major hemorrhage was found to be 1.4 percent higher yearly after years of warfarin exposure. The study concluded that a five-item risk stratification score predicted risk for warfarin-associated major hemorrhage in patients with AF.
