The purpose of this study was to examine the efficacy and safety of amiodarone to maintain sinus rhythm in patients with refractory atrial fibrillation or flutter. One hundred ten patients with atrial fibrillation or flutter, refractory to > or = 1 class I antiarrhythmic agents (mean +/- SD 2.5 +/- 1.5, median 2), were given low-dose amiodarone (mean maintenance dose 268 +/- 100 mg/day) to determine its efficacy to maintain normal sinus rhythm after chemical or electrical cardioversion.
