The Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta‘s Dr. D. George Wyse, Professor Emeritus at UCalgary’s Faculty of Medicine and a Distinguished Scientist of the Heart Rhythm Society, was recently interviewed by David Gray of CBC Radio’s Homestretch program. Dr. Wyse discussed the RE-LY trial and the recent study based on the trial’s data. The study compared the effectiveness of Dabigatran (Pradaxa) and Warfarin on patients with atrial fibrillation.
