Inclusion and exclusion criteria

Inclusion criteria Diagnosis and main criteria for inclusion: Paroxysmal, persistent, or permanent (chronic) non-rheumatic atrial fibrillation with a history of coronary artery disease (CAD)

Inclusion Criteria:

  • previous treatment with BIBR 1048 in PETRO (trial 1160.20- NCT01227629) and no premature discontinuation of therapy
  • paroxysmal, persistent, or permanent (chronic) non-rheumatic atrial fibrillation, documented by electrocardiogram (ECG) at least twice prior to enrollment in PETRO
  • concomitant coronary artery disease -an additional risk factor for stroke (one or more of the following conditions/events): hypertension, diabetes mellitus (DM), congestive heart failure (CHF) or Left ventricular dysfunction (LVD), previous ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack) TIA, or age greater than 75 years. -age >= 18 years
  • written, informed consent

Exclusion criteria

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Valvular heart disease conferring significantly increased risk of thromboembolic events (e.g. clinically significant mitral stenosis or prosthetic valves). planned cardioversion while patients are in the study.
  • contraindication to anticoagulant therapy (previous intracranial hemorrhage, gastro-intestinal (GI) hemorrhage within previous 3 months, previous severe hemorrhage with warfarin at therapeutic international normalized ratio (INR), regular use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, hemorrhagic diathesis) major bleeding within the last 6 months (other than GI hemorrhage).
  • severe renal impairment (estimated glomerular filtration rate [GFR] <= 30 mL/min). uncontrolled hypertension (systolic blood pressure [SBP] > 180 mm Hg and/or diastolic blood pressure [DBP] > 100 mmHg).
  • Women who are pregnant or of childbearing potential who refuse to use a medically acceptable form of contraception throughout the study (note: a negative pregnancy test must be obtained for any woman of childbearing potential prior to entry into the study).
  • Patients who have received an investigational drug other than BIBR 1048 within the last 30 days.
  • Patients considered unreliable by the investigator concerning the requirements for follow-up during the study and/or compliance with study drug administration. Another indication for anticoagulant treatment (eg, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolus). Clinically significant anemia (note: patients with mild-moderate anemia should only be enrolled after the possibility of a GI bleeding source has been evaluated, the etiology of the anemia identified, and appropriate action taken). Patients suffering from thrombocytopenia (platelets < 100,000/uL). Any other condition which, in the discretion of the investigator, would not allow safe participation in the study.
  • Continuing or planned concomitant treatment with antiplatelet agents other than acetylsalicylic acid (ASA).
  • Recent malignancy or radiation therapy (<= 6 months).
