I wonder if I could let me know your experiences with pre ablation blood thinners. I was diagnosed with PAF this summer and I’m considered low risk so currently on the pill in the pocket regime and no anticoagulants.
I may of miss heard but I thought my EP said start 3 months before the procedure and he set me up for an appointment for yesterday with a view to doing the ablation in “January” (they have since lost half my notes so heaven knows when it will actually happen). When I went to the anti coagulant clinic yesterday the nurse read that the EP wanted me to start them 7 days before hand.
I was wondering what your time line was for starting blood thinners prior to an ablation?
