Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is exceedingly common in patients with heart failure (HF), as they share common risk factors. Rate control is the cornerstone of treatment for AF; however, restoration of sinus rhythm should be considered when more than minimal symptoms are present. Life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias are responsible for the primary mode of death in patients with NYHA I, II, or III HF. Although implantable cardioverter defibrillators protect against sudden cardiac arrest, many patients will present with VT or ICD shocks. Antiarrhythmic drug therapy beyond beta-blocker therapy remains fundamental to the termination of acute VT and the prevention of ICD shocks.
