    OBJECTIVE Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequently diagnosed cardiac arrhythmia. Anti-arrhythmic drugs may be used to suppress ectopic foci and interrupt reentry circuits, but are often insufficient to treat recurrent AF and have a number of adverse effects. Alternative therapies, such as...

    This article focuses on the rate-dependence of antiarrhythmic drug action. Much change has occurred in recent years in the role of antiarrhythmic drugs in the control of cardiac arrhythmias. A precise understanding of the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias has led to electrode catheter ablation...

    Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia. For many years, treatment was predominantly pharmacological. The identification of signals from the pulmonary veins as critical to AF in many patients led to catheter ablation targeting these signals. Catheter ablation is more effective...

    The article discusses the search for the ideal Class III antiarrhythmic agent. While methods to control cardiac arrhythmias reportedly evolve rapidly with radiofrequency catheter ablation and implantable devices as the biggest advances, progress has been moderate with finding newer drugs. The...
