The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has issued a final draft guidance document this week regarding the use of dabigatran for the prevention of stroke in atrial fibrillation.  NICE is supporting the use of dabigatran for patients that have atrial fibrillation and other risk factors for stroke.  This support will undoubtedly be welcomed by both physicians and patients.  The final appraisal document from NICE is expected before the end of the year.
