    Sammanfattning : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia, affecting at least 2.9 % of the Swedish population. Although AF is associated with increased risk of ischaemic stroke, there have been many reports on the underuse of oral anticoagulants (OAC) and non-adherence to guidelines in other areas as well.

    Sammanfattning : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. In order to improve the management of patients with AF, a better understanding of patients’ arrhythmia-related symptoms and health-related quality of life (HRQoL), as well as a finer grasp of the effect of AF initiation and the revolutionary treatment of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) on neurohormonal balance are of great importance.

    Sammanfattning : Background: The Framingham Study from 1991 showed a clear correlation between atrial fibrillation (AF) and ischemic stroke, where patients with AF had an almost fivefold increase in risk of stroke compared with patients without AF. Since then, several trials have evaluated different antithrombotic treatments to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with AF. LÄS MER
