I keep reading online that afib increases rid of stroke 5-6 fold (depending on the source). Whatever the stats it's clearly a huge risk.
What is not clear is whether they mean that's the risk WITHOUT anticoagulant or even with it.
If you are on the drug, by roughly how much does it reduce the stroke risk back down to?
Sorry for all the questions but I am finding information gaps in my reading and I really need to get a firmer picture. Thanks all.
