BACKGROUND Although early improvement of haemodynamic parameters following successful cardioversion of atrial fibrillation (AF) has been well documented, the long-term benefits of sinus rhythm (SR) restoration are less obvious, mainly due to a high rate of AF relapses. AIM To determine the impact of SR restoration and maintenance on exercise tolerance and… CONTINUE READING
