Control of hypertension improves the outcome of therapies for paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation


Hypertension is known to increase the risk of atrial fibrillation. It has a role to play in atrial fibrosis and remodeling which tends to propagate further atrial fibrillation.  Current anti arrhythmic therapy is unsatisfactory due to its toxicity. Management of hypertension offers an attractive target for improving therapy of atrial fibrillation. We examine the current evidence for anti hypertensive therapy in atrial fibrillation.
