A multicentric prospective study in usual care: D-dimer and cardiovascular events in patients with atrial fibrillation
Thrombosis Research,

Mahe I et al. – The authors identified a Ddimer (DD) threshold defining at any time patients at low risk of cardiovascular (CV) event. In addition, patients with higher DD levels are at higher risk of CV events, even if they are receiving oral anticoagulants. Otherwise, DD measurement is relevant in elderly patients. DD measurement and monitoring are useful to assess the risk of CV events in usual care. The implications of DD measurement on the choice and the intensity of the antithrombotic treatment remain to be determined.
