Core Tip This critical review of the scientific literature aims to investigate the potential clinical significance of red blood cell distribution width (RDW) in atrial fibrillation (AF). We concluded that an enhanced RDW value is not only a predictive factor and a marker of AF but its measurement may also be helpful for predicting the risk of developing many adverse complications in patients with AF, such as recurrence and duration of AF, hospitalization for heart failure, bleeding, left atrial thrombosis and stasis, thromboembolic events and mortality.
