Coronary artery calcium progression and atrial fibrillation

Coronary artery calcium (CAC) progression is associated with a ‘dose-response’ increase in risk for development of atrial fibrillation (AF) according to findings recently reported by lead author Dr Wesley O’Neal (Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA) from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) study.1
