Its prevalence varies between continents and ethnicity, but the estimated number of patients with AF worldwide might be between 30 and 100 million.1 This prevalence is expected to increase significantly in the next 30–50 years due to an ageing population, and increasing risk factors to develop AF, including arterial hypertension and diabetes.2–5 In all populations studied, both prevalence and incidence are higher in men than in women and increase with age.6
