Adam N., Dr -

A couple of typos I think in the 'results' section here???

The written notes say;
• There was no association between ischemic stroke and secondary atrial fibrillation regardless if from ACS, pulmonary disease or sepsis.
• Increased bleeding rates in patients with atrial fibrillation associated with ACS but not ACS or sepsis.

But from listening to the recording, perhaps it should say ;
• There is an association between ischemic stroke and secondary atrial fibrillation regardless if from ACS, pulmonary disease or sepsis, with a risk of 3.2% at 3 years. However, anti coagulant use did not lower this risk in these groups.
• Anti coagulant use increased bleeding rates in patients with secondary atrial fibrillation associated with pulmonary disease, but not from ACS or sepsis.

thanks
