People with atrial
fibrillation -- an irregular beating pattern of the heart's upper chambers that often develops with age -- experience five times the risk of stroke as individuals with normally beating hearts.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Healthcare team said, It becomes difficult for smaller companies to succeed in the Global Atrial
Fibrillation market mainly because of the high development costs required for licensing, acquisitions, marketing, and manufacturing.
In 2005, the prevalence of atrial
arrhythmia was 15% in the overall group.

Stroke-related neurological damage also was more severe and disabling in people with atrial

Although statin therapy protected against atrial
fibrillation in several previous mostly-male studies, atrial
fibrillation is different in women than in men.
3 Porter's Five Forces Analysis for the Global Atrial
The high atrial
fibrillation prevalence coupled with the presence of high disposable incomes of patients, the presence of a robust reimbursement infrastructure and rising healthcare expenditure are some of the major factors driving the growth of North America atrial
fibrillation, the upper heart chambers quiver rather than beat regularly.
