OBJECTIVES The present study determined the incidence and time course of atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrences in patients with a history of AF and fitted with an implantable monitoring device. BACKGROUND The long-term risk of undetected recurrence of AF in patients receiving stable antiarrhythmic therapy remains uncertain. METHODS In 110 patients with a class I indication for physiologic pacing and a history of AF, a pacemaker with dedicated functions for AF detection and electrogram… CONTINUE READING
