Abstract

Background-Improving health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is an important treatment goal in the management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Uncertainty exists as to whether patients' HRQoL differ when treated with medical rhythm control or rate control. We compared HRQoL between patients treated with rhythm control or rate control in a large observational registry of patients with recent-onset AF. Methods and Results-In the Registry on Cardiac Rhythm Disorders Assessing the Control of Atrial Fibrillation (RECORDAF), 2439 patients with recent onset (
