BACKGROUND Although atrial fibrillation (AF) is a known complication of amyloidotic cardiomyopathy (AC), a precise pathophysiological and prognostic characterization is not available. We therefore aimed to assess prevalence, incidence, risk factors and prognostic significance of AF in light-chain (AL), hereditary transthyretin-related (m-ATTR) and non-mutant transthyretin-related (wt-ATTR) AC.
