Three in One: Atrial Fibrillation Incidence, Safety of Transcatheter Valves & Duration of Triple Therapy After Stent Implantation - Video Review

I just did another video review of three important recent trials for you:

PUBLICATION #1: Talks about the rising incidence of atrial fibrillation over the last 50 years. (Schnabel et al., The Lancet, May 2015)

PUBLICATION #2: Compares transcatheter aortic valves versus surgically implanted valves in low-risk patients with aortic stenosis. (Thyregod et al., JACC, May 2015)

PUBLICATION #3: Looks at clopidogrel of 6 weeks vs. 6 months in patients who are already on anticoagulation and aspirin following stent implantation. (Fiedler et al., JACC, April 2015)

Enjoy and let me know what you think in the comments section!
