INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The risk of stroke in atrial fibrillation is heterogeneous and depends upon underlying clinical conditions included in current risk stratification schemes. Recently, the CHA(2)DS(2)-VASc score has been included in guidelines to be more inclusive of common stroke risk factors seen in everyday clinical practice, and useful in defining "truly low risk" subjects. We aimed to assess the usefulness of CHA(2)DS(2)-VASc score to give us an additional prognostic perspective… CONTINUE READING
