Abstract

Background: Given that the restoration of sinus rhythm after chronic atrial fibrillation is associated with embolic events, anticoagulation is prescribed before and after pharmacological and electrical cardioversion. However, the need for anticoagulation in patients with acute atrial fibrillation (lasting
