Effect of Age on Outcomes of Catheter Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation


Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice, accounting for more than 2 million adults in the United States1 and becoming an emerging epidemic of cardiovascular disease.  Its prevalence is not only related to the presence of heart disease, as demonstrated in the Framingham Heart Study2, where the lifetime risk of developing AF in the absence of conditions such as chronic heart failure or coronary artery disease was 16.5% in men and 15.9% in women.
