3). Complications such as heart failure, cardiogenic shock, and in-hospital mortality were higher for patients with AF than for patients who were in sinus rhythm. 5]). 1%, Ledda et al, 1994). Nevertheless, the development of AF may simply reflect co-morbidity. 7-fold increase in mortality. On multivariate analysis, AF was not an independent risk factor for mortality, but was associated with older age and a higher prevalence of heart failure, shock, or ventricular arrhythmias — all factors associated with an increased mortality.

46). Nevertheless the analysis by Stevenson and colleagues (1996) suggested that the prognosis of patients with advanced heart failure and AF may actually be improving. Their findings support the practice of avoiding class I antiarrhythmic drugs in this group, and may reflect recent beneficial changes in heart failure therapy. Thus, the prevention of AF and treatment of patients with AF and associated cardiovascular disease are likely to yield benefits in terms of reduced mortality and stroke, as well as reducing health-care costs.
