Outcomes were analyzed according to antithrombotic therapy.Abstract: OBJECTIVES: The study sought to determine the patterns of antithrombotic therapy and association with clinical outcomes in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and CHA2DS2-VASc (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age >=75 years, diabetes mellitus, prior stroke or transient ischemic attack or thromboembolism, vascular disease, age 65-74 years, sex category) score >=2 following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).Abstract: RESULTS: During the 5-year enrollment period, 933 (57.6%) patients were discharged on oral anticoagulant therapy (OAC). Uninterrupted antiplatelet therapy (APT) for at least 6 months or until an endpoint event was used in 544 of 933 (58.3%) of patients on OAC and 77.5% of patients not on OAC. At 2 years, patients on OAC had a similar rate of stroke (6.6% vs. 5.6%; p = 0.53) and the composite outcome of death or stroke (29.7% vs. 31.8%; p = 0.33), compared with no OAC. OAC with APT was associated with a reduced rate of stroke (5.4% vs. 11.1%; p = 0.03) and death or stroke (29.7% vs. 40.1%; p = 0.01), compared with no OAC or APT. Following adjustment, OAC with APT and APT alone were both associated with reduced rates of stroke compared with no OAC or APT (hazard ratio for OAC+APT: 0.43, 95% confidence interval: 0.22 to 0.85; p = 0.015; hazard ratio for APT alone: 0.32, 95% confidence interval: 0.16 to 0.65; p = 0.002), while OAC alone was not.
