Prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) is increasing and now affects over 10% of individuals aged ≥80 years. Warfarin is effective in preventing thromboembolic events, but is substantially under-used in the elderly, and use of new anticoagulants at age ≥80 years is also limited. We determined the incidence and outcome of AF-related thromboembolic events at all ages in a population-based study and projected future event rates.
