Have you recently been diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation?
Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat that can cause blood clots to form in the heart. These clots or pieces of clots can break away and block other blood vessels. If the clot blocks an artery in the brain it can cause a stroke. Patients with Atrial Fibrillation are at high risk for blood clots or stroke and are often prescribed an anticoagulation medication (blood thinner). An anticoagulant prevents blood from clotting and decreases the risk for stroke.
