Prevention of atrial fibrillation

Project summary

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common heart rhythm disorder that affects both women and men. AF and its complications cause an increased risk of illness and death, as well as high health costs. Until now, little attention has been paid to differences between women and men with regard to AF prevention.

We hypothesize that the long-term prognosis of AF depends not only on the outcome and treatment of AF, but is the result of the course of risk factors that arise years before diagnosis and the course after the diagnosis of AF.
