Background: In 2002, the European Society of Cardiology conducted the Euro Heart Survey (EHS), while in 2014concluded 1-year follow-up of the EURObservational Research Programme AF (EORP-AF) Pilot Registry. Methods: We analysed differences in clinical profiles, therapeutic approaches and outcomes between these two cohorts after propensity score matching (PSM). Results: After PSM, 5206 patients were analysed. In EORP-AF there were more elderly patients than EHS (p <.001). EORP-AF patients were more burdened with cardiovascular (CV) and non-CV comorbidities, with a higher proportion of patients with high thromboembolic risk. EORP-AF patients used more oral-anticoagulant (OAC) (p <.001). At 1-year follow-up EORP-AF patients had lower risk for thromboembolic and CV events, readmission for AF and other CV reasons (all p <.001), showing conversely a higher risk for CV death (p =.015). Kaplan-Meier curves showed that EORP-AF patients had higher risk for CV death (p <.0001) and all-cause death (p =.0019). Cox regression confirmed that EORP-AF patients were at higher risk for CV death (p =.021). Conclusions: We found significant changes in AF epidemiology over a decade in Europe, with older patients, more burdened with comorbidities. A greater use of OAC was found. Despite a reduction in risk for thromboembolic events, a high risk of CV-related death was still evident.
