     Consensus guidelines regarding management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), acute coronary syndrome and after transcutaneous coronary intervention / stenting are presented. Anticoagulant therapy in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation includes bitamin K antagonists in well-controlled dosages or new peroral anticoagulants. The necessity to evaluate stroke risk in patients with AF (using CHA2DS2-VASc scale) and hemorrhagic risk (by HAS-BLED scale) is emphasized.
