Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most commonly encountered, sustained cardiac arrhythmia in clinical practice. The risk of developing AF increases with age and tends to be higher in males than in females. The disease presents with a wide spectrum of symptoms and severity and is progressive. Its current global prevalence is around 34 million patients, which is expected to increase as the general population ages. Paroxysmal AF accounts for approximately 39% of all diagnosed prevalent cases of AF.
