Patients with atrial fibrillation are often anticoagulated with Warfarin. Warfarin has a narrow therapeutic window requiring frequent monitoring. This study aims to investigate the incidence of adverse events in the "real world" for patients receiving Warfarin for lone atrial fibrillation.
||Observational Model: Ecologic or Community
Time Perspective: Retrospective
