of therapy to eliminate potential selection bias.
  • Follow-up data captured for a minimum of 2 and up to 8 years after diagnosis, to create a comprehensive database of treatment decisions and outcomes in everyday clinical practice.
  • Included patients have been diagnosed with non-valvular AF within the past 6 weeks and have at least one additional risk factor for stroke, and as such, are potential candidates for anticoagulant therapy to prevent blood clots leading to stroke. It is left to the investigator's clinical judgment to identify a patient's stroke risk factor(s), which are not restricted to those included in established risk scores. Patients are included whether or not they receive anticoagulant therapy, so current and future treatment strategies and failures can be properly understood in relation to patients' individual risk profiles.

    The GARFIELD-AF Registry is funded by an unrestricted research grant from Bayer Pharma AG.

    The burden of AF 

    Up to 2% of the global population has AF.[1] Around 6 million people in Europe[8], 3-5 million people in the United States[9],[10] and up to 8 million people in China have AF.[11],[12] It is estimated that its prevalence will at least double by 2050 as the population ages. AF confers a five-fold increase in the risk of stroke, and one in five of all strokes is attributed to this arrhythmia. Ischaemic strokes in association with AF are often fatal, and those patients who survive are left more frequently and more severely disabled and more likely to suffer a recurrence than patients with other causes of stroke. In consequence, the risk of death from AF-related stroke is doubled and the cost of care is increased by 50%.[13]
