ABSTRACT
The author reflects on a study, conducted by M. Paciaroni and colleagues, which focuses on the effectiveness and safety of anticoagulants as initial treatment in patients with acute cardioembolic stroke. He views that during prophylaxis lower doses of anticoagulants seem to give better results in comparison to compression devices. He also opines that patients may benefit from short-term anticoagulation since they are at a greater risk of reoccurrence rather than the risk of brain hemorrhage.
