Eligible, first-detected AFib patients, who provide informed consent to participate, will be randomly assigned to one of two different groups. One group of participants will receive the study intervention – dronedarone – in addition to usual care. The second group will receive usual care alone – medicines that they would receive as part of their usual care (as decided by the care team) per routine clinical practice.
The trial is not blinded. This means that both the participants and the study team know to which group the patient has been assigned.
