Atrial fibrillation (AF) has in recent years been the subject of intense investigation in terms of obtaining a better understanding of its mechanism and improving its management. Despite the advances made, AF remains a challenge for the clinician, and it is uncertain whether these theoretical advances have resulted in a significant improvement in the way the vast majority of patients are managed in general practice. Several reasons may account for this situation. One possible reason is… CONTINUE READING
