Abstract

Non-valvular atrial fibrillation is a common and from a neurological perspective the most significant cardiac arrhythmia with a growing world-wide incidence. It also carries a significant associated morbidity and mortality, with cardioembolic strokes arguably being the most disabling sequelae. This brief review will highlight the important studies and the latest treatment modalities available for stroke prevention in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.
