Secondary AF: Risk of Recurrence Found in Framingham


Is new-onset AF linked to an acute precipitant less likely to recur than spontaneous AF? Is it any less dangerous? A new study finds answers in Framingham data.

Current atrial fibrillation (AF) guidelines do not recommend long-term management (eg, oral anticoagulation) of patients with AF that results from a secondary, or reversible, condition. The current study found that while these patients are less likely to proceed to recurrent AF than patients who present with spontaneous arrhythmia, the risk is substantial and places them at risk for conseuqences of AF, including stroke.Find the details and the take-home message in the slide-show summary above.
