Preventing Atrial Fibrillation Reducing Stroke- Leading Cause of Death Worldwide

Atrial fibrillation is the most common abnormal heart rhythm condition, It’s when disordered electrical signals cause the upper chambers (the atria) of the heart to contract too quickly and chaotically (fibrillate). One in four adults above the age of 40 is developing this condition in their lifetime. AF is a disease of the ageing population and its prevalence increases with age.

Atrial fibrillation is usually accompanied by symptoms related to a rapid heart rate. Patients with AF are at a high risk to experience the development of a blood clot in the heart. This blood clot may break loose and can be washed into the brain, where it can cause a stroke. Patients with atrial fibrillation thus have a five-fold increased risk of stroke when compared to people without atrial fibrillation.

Stroke is the first leading cause for disability, second leading cause of dementia and third leading cause of death worldwide. A stroke occurs when a blood clot blocks a vessel or artery, or when a blood vessel breaks, interrupting blood flow to an area of the brain. When a stroke occurs, it effects brain cells and kills them in the immediate area. This can happen anytime from a few minutes after the stroke starts to a few hours later. Stroke is not only affecting the developed world but also the low and middle-income countries account for 85.5% of total stroke deaths worldwide. More high-quality years of life are lost due to stroke than to any other disease.

The disability caused by the disease can be significantly reduced by effective treatment of those affected. World Cardiology 2018 designed on the theme: The Fight for Healthy Heart is inviting expert faculty from all over the world that will present practical clinical approaches to diagnostics and latest management strategies of challenging and controversial topics in cardiology. The Conference would cover all the major session on Stroke and Atrial fibrillation.
We would warmly welcome you all to attend the World Cardiology 2018 in Edinburg Scotland- where the world of Cardiology would gather together on November 19-20, 2018
