Title:
Comparison of safety of left atrial catheter ablation procedures for atrial arrhythmias under continuous anticoagulation with apixaban versus phenprocoumon. 
Abstract:
Apixaban is increasingly used for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation. Data about the safety of left atrial radiofrequency ablation procedures under continuous apixaban therapy are lacking. We performed a matched-cohort study of patients undergoing left atrium ablation procedures for atrial fibrillation or left atrial flutter. For each patient on apixaban, 2 patients on phenprocoumon were matched by age, gender, and type of arrhythmia. The primary safety end point was a compos...    »
