To Assess the Predictive Value of D-dimer Level on the Occurrence of Cardiovascular Events (COAGFAII)
The primary aim of the study was to assess whether D-Dimer level at entry or an increase of D-Dimer level during the follow-up could predict the occurrence of subsequent cardiovascular events in patients with atrial fibrillation.
