Medical managementof concurrent hypertension, atrialfibrillation, and coronary artery disease will lead to optimal outcomes. Aortic valve stenosis affects 3% of persons older than 65 years and is the most significant cardiac valve disease in developed countries.1 Its pathology includes processes...
Atrialfibrillation (AF) is frequently encountered in patients with aorticstenosis (AS) and its incidence also increases with age. In the general population, AF is known to increase cardiovascular risk. We sought to investigate the prognostic importance of AF associated with AS in the context of routine...
Atrialfibrillation (AFib) exists more frequently in patients with aorticstenosis (AS) than in patients without, and AFib may be a sign of progressive deterioration of AS. Echocardiographic assessment of AS in sinus rhythm is well documented, however, little is known about AFibin AS since such patients...
Despite good progress in the managementof patients with atrialfibrillation (AF), this arrhythmia remains one of the major causes of stroke, heart failure, sudden death, and cardiovascular morbidity in the world. These 2016 AtrialFibrillation Guidelines are based on the current state-of-the-art...

Thus, development ofatrialfibrillationinaorticstenosis often leads to heart failure due to an inability to maintain cardiac output.

Atrialfibrillation (AF) is frequent in patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS). Pressure overload leads to marked structural and electrical remodelling of left atrium. The frequency of persistent AF increases with age and paroxysmal, asymptomatic, AF seems even more frequent.

What are the Treatment Guidelines ofAtrialFibrillation (AFib)?
2 Proposed managementof non-valvular atrialfibrillation. Alternative oral anticoagulants. Several effective substitutes for warfarin are used for stroke
Atrialfibrillation (AFib) is a heart rhythm abnormality caused by a problem with the heart's electrical system. Normally, the heart's electricity flows from the top chambers (atria) to the bottom chambers (ventricles), causing the normal contraction. In atrialfibrillation the electrical flow is chaotic causing...
In conclusion, aorticstenosis, but not mitral regurgitation, was independently predictive of development ofatrialfibrillation and combined valvular surgery
Inaorticstenosis, the aortic valve does not open fully. This decreases blood flow from the heart.
In the absence ofatrialfibrillation, patients with mitral stenosis still have an increased risk for thrombus formation in their left atrial appendage due to stagnation of blood. This may lead to embolic events including stroke, acute myocardial infarction, acute mesenteric ischemia or “blue toe syndrome.”
