Comparison between CHADS2 and CHA2 DS2 -VASc score in a stroke cohort with atrial fibrillation.

Eur. J. Neurol.. 2013 Apr;20(4):623-8, PMID: 22834861

In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), stroke risk stratification schemes have been developed to optimize antithrombotic treatment. The CHADS(2) score is frequently used but has limitations. The CHA(2) DS(2) -VASc score improves risk prediction. Our objectives are to describe CHADS(2) and CHA(2) DS(2) -VASc score distribution in a cohort of patients with AF and first-ever ischaemic stroke (FIS) and to identify differences in embolic risk stratification.
