Answer

The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) utilizes a similar classification schema published in its 2010 guidelines. The ESC included one additional characterization, silent AF (asymptomatic), which can manifest as AF-related complications such as ischemic stroke or tachycardiomyopathy, or is diagnosed incidentally on electrocardiography (ECG). Any form of AF may be silent or asymptomatic. [34]
