A stroke of red

Posted by ubpdqn on December 4, 2011

There are a number of risk models for stroke in  atrial fibrillation  and bleeding.

I explore two validated models in this post.

The papers are referenced. The source material is very important and instructive with respect:

  • definitions of risk factors (different between two models)
  • the sample sizes
  • the residual uncertainty, limitation of discrimination and explanatory power of models
