Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure: Treatment Considerations for a Dual Epidemic

Atrial fibrillation (AF) and heart failure (HF) have emerged as major cardiovascular epidemics in developed nations over the past decade. They share similar risk factors, seem to mutually accelerate progression and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Their relationship involves complex hemodynamic, neuro-hormonal, inflammatory and electrophysiologic mechanisms, which go beyond just mutual risk factors. This review focuses on updates in AF and HF with a hope of better understanding this relationship and the management of this complex duo.
