Information for Clinicians

Why recommend PRESTIGE-AF to your patients?

ICH survivors with AF are not uncommon and present a dilemma for many clinicians who wish to balance preventing ischaemic stroke without increasing the likelihood of recurrent ICH, and so question the use of anticoagulants.

In the video below, Professor Roland Veltkamp goes into details as to why we believe PRESTIGE-AF is the best option for the benefit of your patients.

Materials to support patient involvement in decision-making

These educational materials have been designed to be used jointly by healthcare professionals and patients during consultations that address the topic of stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who have sustained an intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) or other major bleeding event.

The aim is to facilitate shared decision-making between healthcare professionals and patients and to promote patient understanding of their future stroke and bleeding risk.
