Over half the 300 thousand Swedes that are at risk of stroke because of a heart condition called atrial fibrillation are either on the wrong medication, or on no drugs at all, newspaper Sydsvenskan reports.

The paper quotes a new government study, which claims more than one thousand lives could be saved each year if people were given the right medication.
