Abstract

Filling a gap in the literature, this all-encompassing reference explores the epidemiology, mechanisms, and pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation and compiles the latest diagnostic and treatment practices for patient care. The book 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. Finally, it offers new strategies to improve the therapy and outcomes of patients suffering from the myriad of complications associated with atrial fibrillation.
