NORIA, Sofía  and  LANDRO, Florencia Di. Perioperative management of the anticoagulated patient with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.2, pp.54-74. ISSN 0797-0048.

Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of stroke and systemic embolism, so it is important to prevent this terrible complication with anticoagulant therapy. To the usual use of warfarin were added in recent years, direct anticoagulants.

In front of an invasive procedure, it is necessary to evaluate embolism and bleeding risks to define the most appropriate management of these drugs.

In the present article, recommendations based in expert consensus of American College of Cardiology are proposed, to periprocedural anticoagulation treatment in non-valvular atrial fibrillation.

Keywords : Non-valvular atrial fibrillation; Anticoagulants; Perioperative period.
