Atrial fibrillation in the elderly: Is ablation ready for prime time?

  • Publish Date: 2006-06-28
  • Atrial fibrillation is the most common sustained arrhythmia and results in significant morbidity, especially in the elderly. The prevalence of atrial fibrillation increases dramatically with advancing age to almost 6 % in individuals older than 65 years. In fact, 84 % of people with atrial fibrillation are over 65 years of age.1 Additionally, the risk of stroke increases with advancing age, such that one-third of strokes in patients over the age of 65 are caused by atrial fibrillation.
