Subclinical atrial fibrillation: A new entity and what it means?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

New device technologies allow for detection of clinically silent atrial fibrillation. This new entity has been associated with increased risk for stroke, even if detected for only relatively brief time periods. Current practice guidelines do not provide recommendations on how to approach this new clinical entity.
