Atrial fibrillation exacerbates cognitive dysfunction and cerebral perfusion in heart failure.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Heart failure (HF) increases risk for cognitive impairment in part due to the negative effects of cardiac dysfunction on cerebral perfusion. Atrial fibrillation (AF), an independent risk factor for cognitive impairment, often accompanies HF and is associated with lower systemic perfusion. However, no study has examined the associations among AF… (More)
