TLDR
Leveraging the vast phenotypic differences among AsA and NHPI groups was identified as a key opportunity to yield novel clues into etiologic and prognostic factors to inform prevention efforts and intervention strategies.

TLDR
It is concluded that addressing disparities in prevention and healthcare resource allocation will likely improve AF-related outcomes in minorities and to meet identified racial disparities.
Racial Disparities in Awareness and Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation: The REasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) Study
TLDR
Black patients with atrial fibrillation were less likely than whites to be aware of having AF or to be treated with warfarin, and potential reasons for the racial disparity inwarfarin treatment warrant further investigation.
Racial disparities in hospitalizations, procedural treatments and mortality of patients hospitalized with atrial fibrillation.
TLDR
Using a large, contemporary sample of inpatients, significant racial differences in baseline characteristics, treatments, and outcomes of patients hospitalized with atrial fibrillation are found.
Differential Impact of Risk Factors in Blacks and Whites in the Development of Atrial Fibrillation: the Reasons for Geographic And Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) Study
TLDR
Modifiable risk factors are important in AF development among blacks despite a lower risk of the arrhythmia, and racial differences in the magnitude of the association of individual AF risk factors do not explain the AF paradox.
