Rhythm control in heart failure patients with atrial fibrillation: contemporary challenges including the role of ablation. Journal of the American College of Cardiology Trulock, K. M., Narayan, S. M., Piccini, J. P. 2014; 64 (7): 710–21

Abstract

Because nonpharmacological interventions likely alter the risks and benefits associated with rhythm control, this paper reviews the role of current rhythm control strategies in atrial fibrillation. This report also focuses on the specific limitations of pharmacological interventions and the utility of percutaneous ablation in this growing population of patients with concomitant atrial fibrillation and heart failure.
