Atrial fibrillation (AFib) commonly occurs with hypertension, and is associated with a 5x greater risk of stroke. With effective treatment, the risk of stroke can be reduced. However, up to 50% of AFib cases present with no subjective symptoms, making it unlikely to detect in an annual physical exam.
During the ESC Congress 2023 Prof. G. Hindricks, Prof. F. Osman and assoc. Prof. K. Senoo will discuss further about Atrial Fibrillation, Hypertension, Strokes and ablation.
