Risk of coronary events in atrial fibrillation [Риск развития коронарных осложнений при фибрилляции предсердий.]

It has been established that cardiovascular events due to coronary heart disease are highly prevalent in the population of patients with atrial fibrillation. In this review, pathophysiologic mechanisms explaining this association are detailed along with supporting epidemiological evidence. Various methods for the prediction and prevention of coronary events in atrial fibrillation are discussed, including modification of shared risk factors, antithrombotic therapy and selection of the optimal direct oral anticoagulant in terms of favourable influence on ischemic cardiac outcomes. © 2020 Seoul National University.
