Özet

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a very common cardiac arrhythmia with an increased mortality in patients with heart failure. Whether the best therapeutic approach to these patients is to restore sinus rhythm or to adequately control the ventricular rate is still controversial. The aim of this Study was to compare both strategies in patients with AF and nonischemic heart failure.
