Abstract

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a common cardiac rhythm disturbance that historically has a more prevalence as age increases. AF itself has numerous types, and the interventional success rate varies for each of the types. Treatment options vary from anticoagulation and symptom management to invasive approaches such as catheter ablation. As technology improves and our diagnostic capabilities improve, so must our approach to patients with AF. With the depth and breadth of information available, it is often difficult to parse out the optimal way to manage patients with AF. The purpose of this paper will be to review current information and strategies for AF management and to provide general insight from an Electrophysiology perspective to aid in the management of patients with AF.
