Answer

For oral anticoagulation, use dabigatran 150 mg twice daily rather than adjusted-dose vitamin K antagonist (VKA) therapy (target INR range, 2.0-3.0) (Grade 2B)

Patients who are unsuitable for or choose not to take an oral anticoagulant (for reasons other than concerns about major bleeding), use combination therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel. (Grade 1B)
