This editorial refers to ‘The costs of atrial fibrillation in patients with cardiovascular comorbidities—a longitudinal analysis of German health insurance data’ by T. Reinhold et al. , on page 1275. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia greatly impairing the quality of life as well as increasing morbidity and mortality in an ever-growing cohort of patients in the ageing society, many also suffering from concomitant cardiac conditions. Domains of care for AF… Expand
