When you have atrial fibrillation, another medical condition needs to be front and center in your mind: stroke. In fact, managing your stroke risk is considered the most important part of treating your atrial fibrillation.

If that clot travels to your brain, it can cause a stroke — the most dangerous complication of atrial fibrillation. But there’s a lot you can do to keep that from happening.
