Cost-effectiveness of early detection of atrial fibrillation via remote control of implanted devices.


RATIONALE, AIMS AND OBJECTIVES Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an independent risk factor for stroke, and its incidence is high in patients implanted with pacemakers (PMs) and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). The aim of our study is to evaluate the potential benefit of remote control (RC) on the incidence of stroke related to AF in patients with… (More)
