Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia worldwide, with stroke being among the most prevalent and harmful outcomes.
1Because nearly 25% of patients with AF appear asymptomatic, questions regarding the screening of patients at risk for AF (e.g., based on CHA2DS2-VASc score) could help clinical decisions to prescribe prophylactic anticoagulation therapy for effective stroke prevention.
