Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report on a patient who was treated with several antiarrhythmic drugs as well as different ablation strategies. Nevertheless, symptomatic atrial fibrillation always recurred until an off label use with ranolazine was started. We could demonstrate potent effects of ranolazine on atrial fibrillation in a "wash-in wash-out" situation. Although promising controlled studies are needed to investigate a potential role of ranolazine for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. © 2012 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
