Atrial fibrillation, venous thromboembolism, ischemic stroke, and all-cause mortality: The Tromsø study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-07-06)
Background Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased risk of ischemic stroke and all‐cause mortality. Patients with AF are also at increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE), but information on how AF impacts VTE‐related mortality is scarce. Objectives - To investigate the impact of AF on all‐cause mortality in subjects with and without a thromboembolic event (VTE or ischemic ...
