Abstract

Atrial fibrillation is the most common chronic arrhythmia, affecting 1–2% of general population. Because of the risk of stroke and thromboembolism, patients with atrial fibrillation need anticoagulation. The World Health Organization estimates that only 50% of patients follow doctors’ recommendations. In many researches it is emphasized that understanding the sense of treatment fosters patients’ acceptation and enhances the effectiveness of therapy. Atrial fibrillation is common in patients with constrictive pericarditis, especially when the disease is long-standing.
