Impact of AF on stroke risk eliminated with multiple risk factors
Date:8/31/2013

en said: "These results indicate that in patients with three or more risk factors, the risk of stroke is high regardless of the presence of atrial fibrillation. In fact, with five or more risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension, myocardial infarction, heart failure and age above 75 years, the risk associated with atrial fibrillation is eliminated."

She continued: "Our findings suggest that patients without atrial fibrillation or prior stroke may have a stroke risk that is comparable to patients with atrial fibrillation if they have three or more risk factors."

Dr Benn Christiansen concluded: "More research is needed on the effect of multiple risk factors on the risk of stroke in patients without atrial fibrillation. Stroke prevention measures may need to be tailored according to the number of risk factors."
