Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Approximately 430,000 patients were receiving maintenance dialysis in the United States in 2011(1). Compared to the general population, atrial fibrillation is far more common(2) and associated with a much higher risk of stroke in the dialysis population(3). Thus, there is an important need to define and apply strategies to reduce stroke in patients receiving dialysis with atrial fibrillation.
