Selecting the best anticoagulation strategy for patients with end stage renal disease and atrial fibrillation remains controversial. In this three part series, we will explore potential strategies that seek to balance the risk of stroke with adverse effects in patients with end stage renal disease and atrial fibrillation. In Part 1 of this series, we will discuss the risks of anticoagulation and provide a compelling argument for avoiding anticoagulation. The role of direct oral anticoagulants and warfarin in this patient population will be reviewed in Parts 2 and 3, respectively.
