Hi Loquitir - I am sorry but I don't know what you are attempting to say / ask. Could you explain what you want more clearly?


There seems to different approaches across the UK to dealing with patients with AF.

I was just wondering if other patients are aware of any newer AF guidelines internationally with lates treatment information.

I thought it might be helpful to find out about other AFA international users. For example the recent Stockholm Study. Otherwise please disregard.


Lots of information here though it's heavy going. This was sent to me by a consultant cardiologist EP specialist therefore probably definitive. Hope the link works.


That's absolutely the kinda that I was looking for. Extremely helpful reference resource for everyone.

Thank you very much indeed.



A pleasure. Will be asking you questions later ;-)))
