However, opportunistic case finding is likely to miss a significant proportion of people who would otherwise have benefited from treatment, especially those AF patients in the community who may be symptom-free, or those with paroxysmal AF who happen to be in sinus rhythm at the time of pulse checking. Another possible approach is to screen patients who are at higher risk of AF — a ‘‘targeted screening’’ programme.
Other causes of AF AF is common in the postoperative period, especially after cardiothoracic surgery. 4 Two-dimensional echocardiogram showing large pericardial effusion. 44 important area is discussed further in chapter 5. Less common causes of AF include peripartum cardiomyopathy, lupus myocarditis, the cardiomyopathy associated with severe obesity, and both idiopathic and uraemic pericarditis. AF is common in individuals with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT). As an example, AF occurs in up to a third of individuals with the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (Campbell et al, 1977), and ablation of the accessory pathways usually leads to a reduction in subsequent AF.
Furthermore, a retrospective analysis from the SOLVD registry found that the presence of AF was significantly associated with an increase in all-cause mortality, progressive pump failure, and risk of death or rehospitalisation (Dries et al, 1998). Valve disease Rheumatic heart disease is now less frequent in developed countries. For example, valve disease was present only in the minority in our general-practice survey (Lip et al, 1997).
