Peri-operative Bridging Anticoagulation in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation - The New England Journal of Medicine - 2015

Brief Summary:

Among patients with low- and intermediate-risk atrial fibrillation receiving anticoagulation and undergoing an invasive procedure, peri-procedural bridging anticoagulation with LMWH did not reduce the incidence of arterial thromboembolism when compared to no bridging, but did increase the risk of major bleeding.
