Resultado de imagen de European Heart journal
Ziad Hijazi Z et al.  European Heart Journal - First published online: 25 February 2016
"Conclusion:
A novel biomarker-based risk score for predicting stroke in AF was successfully developed and internally validated in a large cohort of patients with AF and further externally validated in an independent AF cohort. The ABC-stroke score performed better than the presently used clinically based risk score and may provide improved decision support in AF."
