Dr. Ken Ellenbogen Talks about Fish Oil for Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke Prevention Drugs — Video

In this video, Dr. Kenneth Ellenbogen talks about important information presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2010. First he talked about the ROCKET AF clinical trial of rivaroxaban, a new drug that is an alternative to warfarin (Coumadin), as well as another alternative, the recently-approved dabigatran. He provided scenarios as to how these drugs may be used in conjunction with catheter ablation or surgery. He also talked about a clinical trial being presented there that found fish oil to not be beneficial for preventing atrial fibrillation.

  1. I for one have been taking fish oil capsules now for 2+ years, without noticeably effect on my AF symptoms. I still take fish oil for its other benefits, but don’t personally see it as a potential reducer of AF.
