Abstract

The article is devoted to the issue of prescribing long-term anticoagulant therapy for patients with atrial flutter. Currently, a unified approach to prescribing anticoagulants for atrial flutter and fibrillation is generally accepted. However, this approach does not have strong evidence. The article provides a comparative analysis of the risk of thromboembolic complications and left atrium thrombosis in atrial flutter and fibrillation, discusses possible mechanisms of these differences. The results of studies confirming and refuting the unified approach to anticoagulant therapy for these arrhythmias are discussed. The author’s clinical protocol for prescribing long-term anticoagulant therapy to patients with atrial flutter is presented. a comparative analysis of current clinical recommendations on this problem is carried out.
