About atrial fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and affects nearly 7 million people in the European Union and the United States.[1],[6] AF currently represents a major economic burden for society and leads to potential life-threatening complications. AF increases the risk of stroke up to five-fold4, worsens the prognosis of patients with CV risk factors[1],[3], and doubles the risk of mortality[5] with significant burden on patients, health care providers and payers. Hospitalizations for AF have increased dramatically (two-to-three-fold) in recent years.[2],[7] AF hospitalizations now represent a third of all hospitalizations for arrhythmia and mortality in the US and Europe.[1] Seventy percent of the annual cost of AF management in Europe is driven by hospital care and interventional procedures.[8]
