    Systemic Review of Long Term Anticoagulation or Antiplatelet Treatment in Patients with Non-Rheumatic Atrial Fibrillation

    BMJ 322: 321-326, 2001

        

    In a study of blood thinners in non-rheumatic atrial fibrillation (AF), warfarin produced 68% reduction in non-fatal strokes versus aspirin which produced a 28% reduction in patients when compared to placebo. The study included 5 trials comparing the two drugs. Doubt is cast on the superiority of warfarin to aspirin but the authors advise caution and suggest larger trials before these results are admitted as conclusive.
