Auricular fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia, affecting one in every four persons. Currently, there are no effective interventions for the primary prevention of the illness, considered to be one of the growing cardiovascular epidemics of the XXI century, and one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality.
