C Krittanawong et al, 2020. Is caffeine or coffee consumption a risk for new-onset atrial fibrillation? A systematic review and meta-analysis, European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, published online.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an essential global concern because it could lead to cardiovascular events such as stroke, heart failure, and mortality. However, more than half of the AF cases are reported to be potentially preventable.1 Although traditional risk factors of AF include hypertension, older age, obesity, diabetes mellitus, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), there is emerging evidence that other lifestyle risk factors are also associated with the risk of developing new-onset AF. Recent studies have demonstrated that moderate caffeine or coffee consumption is associated with either increased or decreased risk of cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease and stroke.2–5 This present meta-analysis aimed to explore the association between caffeine/coffee consumption and the risk of developing new-onset AF.
