Atrial Fibrilliation
edited by
Peter Kowey

Atrial Fibrilliation:

  • Examines the incidence and prevalence of atrial fibrillation, including analyses of specific populations such as the elderly and women
  • Considers new and evolving information and treatment options from recent clinical trials
  • Surveys every pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic method employed for rate control for atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter
  • Studies the prevention of atrial fibrillation using atrial-based pacing, listing recent trials such as MOST and DAPPAF
Atrial Fibrilliation explores the epidemiology, mechanisms, and pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation and compiles the latest diagnostic and treatment practices for patient care.

Atrial Fibrilliation summarizes the most recent advances in symptom relief, drug development, device management, and long-term control of heart rhythm abnormalities and reviews the latest studies on the prevention of stroke and other thromboembolic events in patients with valvular and nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.

Atrial Fibrilliation also offers new strategies to improve the therapy and outcomes of patients suffering from the myriad of complications associated with atrial fibrillation.
