abstract

  • This report presents the outcome of a cohort of 94 patients with atrial fibrillation from the Canadian Registry of Atrial Fibrillation, in which we paid particular attention to the probability of stroke and death. We also evaluated warfarin use over time and compared left atrial dimensions in patients with atrial flutter with those with atrial fibrillation.
