Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Atrial fibrillation and heart failure are both associated with increased morbidity as well as mortality, and there is a complex interaction between the two conditions. The increasing prevalence and incidence rates of AF and CHF, as well as emerging novel but relatively expensive treatments and interventions, have compounded the significant public health impact at a global level. Ongoing investigative efforts continue to advance the knowledge of the complex interplay between these two conditions. This review critically assesses the current evidence in the field regarding prognostication metrics, drug therapy, and interventions for AF in CHF. We will summarize the important new findings published over the last year, with a focus on the latest advances that are of clinical relevance.
