atrial fibrillation, heart failure, systolic (reduced ejection fraction), non-pharmacological treatment
DISEASE INTERVENTION COMPARISON RESULTS
N Engl J Med. 2018 02 01;378(5):417-427 Randomized Controlled Trial, Multicenter Study
IN atrial fibrillation, heart failure, systolic (reduced ejection fraction), non-pharmacological treatment The Use of
catheter ablation, radiofrequency
As Treatment, Acute
Is better Than
medical therapy (rate or rhythm control)
To reduce at 3 years a composite of all-cause death from or hospitalization for heart failure: 29% ablation VS 45% medical Tt. Significantly fewer patients in the ablation group died from any cause: 13% VS 25.0%
