#ESC17: Implanted Cardiac Monitors Detect Undiagnosed Atrial Fibrillation

2017 28 Aug

The incidence of previously undiagnosed atrial fibrillation (AF) may be substantial in patients with risk factors for AF and stroke, according to a study presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2017. By using implanted cardiac monitors, researchers detected nearly 30 percent of previously undiagnosed AF after 18 months in this high-risk... Read more
