[Correspondence] Intracerebral haemorrhage, atrial fibrillation, and anticoagulation – Authors’ reply

We thank Duncan Wilson and colleagues for their comments about our Review.1 These authors discuss an important issue and suggest that non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants might provide a strong option to reduce ischaemic stroke in patients who have atrial fibrillation and have suffered an intracranial haemorrhage. A fundamental advantage of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants over warfarin is the substantially lower risk of intracranial haemorrhage,2 and this feature might be particularly important for patients at high risk of intracranial haemorrhage, including those with previous history of this disorder.
