Answer

The 2015 ACC/AHA/HRS guidelines [14]  concur with the 2012 American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) thrombosis prevention recommendation [22]  that the anticoagulation strategy used for AF be followed for patients with atrial flutter. See a summary of select, specific ACCP recommendations [22] for more information. [22]
