AbstractAtrial fibrillation is the most commonly encountered sustained arrhythmia. The spectrum of symptomatology and presentation are broad. The goals of treatment should include (1) identification of any underlying cause(s) and/or precipitating factor(s), (2) control of ventricular rate, (3) restoration and maintenance of sinus rhythm and (4) prevention of thromboembolism. The characteristics of the arrhythmia differ among patients; hence, some goals will apply in some cases and a different combination in other cases. A thoughtful, individualized approach is essential.
