Re: Should we screen for atrial fibrillation?
Yes we should, not only in order to avoid strokes, also to prevent mesenteric embolism and distal arteries obstruction. Main question remains what kind of anticoagulation once AF diagnosed. I have prescribed warfarin for forty years without bleeding, but with hypercoagulability when stopped, When INR is 2, warfarin is safe and efficient.
