In brief: Xalerto is best

His CHA2DS2-VASc score is 2 (age and presence of hypertension).
All studies have concluded that the benefit from anticoagulation significantly exceeds the risks for almost all AF patients with a score of 2 or more. Xalerto will more effectively reduce his risk of stroke and won't increase his risk of bleeding.
