Investigators observed a step-wise increase in the risk of atrial fibrillation with decreasing kidney function. Compared with patients without kidney disease, those with severe kidney disease had a tw...
Kaoru Ito, Yoichiro Kamatani, Toshihiro Tanaka and colleagues report a genome-wide association study for atrial fibrillation in the Japanese population. They identify six new loci, five of which are n...
(European Society of Cardiology) Newly diagnosed asymptomatic atrial fibrillation patients have a higher rate of previous stroke than those with symptoms, according to results from the GLORIA-AF Regis...
Researchers have identified a microRNA biomarker that demonstrates a strong association with the incidence of atrial fibrillation, the most common abnormal heart rhythm.
A new study examines the link between body surface area, age, and the risk of atrial fibrillation in more than 1.5 million Swedish women.
Researchers have identified a microRNA biomarker that demonstrates a strong association with the incidence of atrial fibrillation, the most common abnormal heart rhythm that affects more than 2.7 mill...
Patrick Ellinor and colleagues report meta-analyses of common and rare variant association studies for atrial fibrillation across multiple populations. They identify 12 new loci, some of which implica...
New research investigates the long-term impact of using aspirin instead of blood thinners in patients with atrial fibrillation who underwent an ablation.
Aim Many patients with ischemic stroke have paroxysmal atrial fibrillation that may be difficult to detect. We sought to identify markers of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and construct a score that m...
Atrial fibrillation is by far the most common cardiac arrhythmia in humans. The incidence of atrial fibrillation increases with age and will increase even more in the future due to the demographic cha...
Essential oils can be a great adjunct to cancer care, aiding in the management of side effects, such as insomnia and nausea. Healthcare professionals should be knowledgeable about the quality and safe...
Atrial fibrillation is common after oesophageal surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether landiolol hydrochloride was effective and safe in the prevention of atrial fibrillation after oes...
The aim of this study to investigate the most frequent risk factors of atrial fibrillation (AF), co-morbidities, complications associated with AF and the use of anticoagulants and other medications in...
