atrial fibrillation, persistent, rate control strategy
DISEASE INTERVENTION COMPARISON RESULTS
Circulation. 2004 Mar 30;109(12):1509-13 Cohorts
IN atrial fibrillation, persistent, rate control strategy The Use of
warfarin use, recovering and maintaining sinus rhythm (either reciving rate or rhythm control management)
As Prognostic Item
Is better Than
not receiving warfaring or resting in atrial fibrillation
To predict a reduced mortality. However, no association of the administration of rate or rhythm control or antiarrhythmics with changes in mortality.
Ann Intern Med. 2004 Nov 2;141(9):653-61 Cost-Effectiveness
IN atrial fibrillation, persistent, rate control strategy The Use of
rate control strategy
As Treatment, Chronic
Is better Than
rhythm control strategy
To improve cost-effectiveness: rate control is always more effective and less costly
Circ J. 2009 Feb;73(2):242-8 Randomized Controlled Trial
IN Study ID: J-RHYTHM 2009, atrial fibrillation, persistent, rate control strategy The Use of
rate control strategy
As Treatment, Chronic
Is equal Than
rhythm control
To modify mortality and cardiovascular morbidity at 1.5 years
