Are periodontitis patients at risk for atrial fibrillation?
Are patients with periodontitis more likely to be at risk for atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter? In the first population-based study to look at a possible link between periodontitis and atrial fibrillation, researchers from Taiwan report results that may have implications for your patients. They reviewed the records of almost 800,000 patients in an effort to understand the link between periodontal disease and the risk from atrial fibrillation.
