Abstract [en]

Management of patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) presenting with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) may be particularly challenging. Given the lack of sound evidence-based recommendations for the management of such patients, the aim of this European Heart Rhythm Association survey was to provide an insight into current practice in Europe regarding management of these patients. Overall, 41 centres submitted a valid response. The majority of respondents were university hospitals (85%). The survey has shown that the principal aspects of the European Society of Cardiology guidelines on the management of AF, and those on ACS, have been adopted. The survey highlights two important areas of uncertainty regarding the optimal composition and duration of antithrombotic therapy with multiple drugs and the optimal regimen(s) of novel oral anticoagulants in patients with AF and ACS.
