Scarce data are available on the effects of hospitalization on oral anticoagulation (OAC) patterns in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). This study aimed to capture the evolving OAC patterns of patients with known non-valvular AF at high risk for stroke (CHA(2)DS(2)-Vasc score2 for males and 3 for females) during hospitalization. A total of 561 eligible patients who were admitted to the cardiology ward of a tertiary hospital were studied. Pre- and post-hospitalization OAC patterns [vitamin-K antagonist (VKA), non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOAC), no OAC], changes between these patterns (initiation, switch, discontinuation, no change) and the respective patient profiles and discharge diagnoses were assessed. During hospitalization, OAC administration increased from 73.1 to 86.6% of patients (p for trend
