atrial filbrillation

David Dang, Raluca Arimie, L Julian Haywood
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia and accounts for more physician visits and hospital days than any other cardiac rhythm disturbance. Atrial filbrillation is incresing in frequency as the population ages, and therefore, a knowledge of the clinical spectrum and available treatment regimen is essential. Here, we review the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and current status of management. Experience is being rapidly accumulated in all of the areas discussed in the management of this important clinical entity...

Programmed rate-related interval stimulation proved to be a low-risk method when applied to 74 patients with drug-resistant ventricular tachycardia or runs of ventricular extrasystoles as precursors of tachycardia. Atrial flutter was converted to atrial filbrillation and sinus rhythm by atrial interval-related multiple stimulations. Tachycardias, which could not be terminated by simple or double stimulation, were successfully suppressed by sequential ventricular R-R related multiple stimulations. Rare-related stimulation has proved to be an alternative method of treating tachy-arrhythmias unresponsive to conventional means...
