AbstractAtrial fibrillation can be categorized into nonpermanent and permanent atrial fibrillation. There is less information on permanent than on nonpermanent atrial fibrillation patients. This analysis aimed to describe the characteristics and current management, including the proportion of patients with successful atrial fibrillation control, of these atrial fibrillation subsets in a large, geographically diverse contemporary sample.
SponsorsThe RealiseAF survey was funded by sanofi (http://en.sanofi.com). The funders had a role in the study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, and preparation of the manuscript: the sanofi author assisted with the preparation of the manuscript and approved the manuscript for publication; sanofi had a role in data analysis via funding of the statistician at Lincoln; and PPSI was supported by sanofi.
