Dr Emma Svennberg (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, SW) summarises the findings from the Systematic ECG Screening for Atrial Fibrillation Among 75-Year-Old Subjects in the Region of Stockholm and Halland, Sweden (STROKESTOP Study). The aim of this study is to determine whether screening for atrial fibrillation by intermittent ECG recording and initiation of anticoagulation treatment among high-risk individuals is cost-effective and can lower the incidence of stroke.
