Join us to discuss the results of the Perioperative Anticoagulation Use for Surgery Evaluation (PAUSE) cohort study, aimed at understanding the safety of using a simplified perioperative management approach for patients with atrial fibrillation taking DOACs. After this episode, you’ll be able to make sense of the controversy over current guidelines around surgical care in this patient population. More importantly, you’ll walk away with practical knowledge to help these patients minimize their risk of adverse events.
