Background Nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) frequently coexists with coronary artery disease (CAD). However, the optimal antithrombotic strategy for patients with concomitant CAD and NVAF is controversial. The aim of this study is to assess the prevalence of CAD with NVAF and to determine antithrombotic treatment options in patients with or without a history of CAD.
