Atrial fibrillation is a common type of cardiac rhythm disturbance occurring in 1-2% of the general population and 5-15% of patients over 75 years of age. It is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia.

Any conditions causing raised atrial pressure, increased atrial muscle mass, atrial fibrosis, inflammation and infiltration of the atrium can cause atrial fibrillation.
