Since AF is an important risk factor for stroke in population terms (associated with 15% of all strokes) and since anticoagulation is a highly effective treatment to reduce this risk, screening for AF might be one such programme. Indeed, the optimal treatment of AF in the population might reduce the overall incidence of stroke by 10%.
