New concepts in atrial fibrillation pathophysiology

Research output: Contribution to journal(Systematic) Review article peer-review


The current classification of atrial fibrillation (AF) is mainly focused on the clinical presentation according to the duration of AF episodes and the mode of termination, which incompletely reflect the severity and progressive nature of the underlying atrial disease. In this review article, "atrial cardiomyopathy" is discussed as a new concept in AF pathophysiology. Electrogram-, imaging-, and biomarker-derived measures and parameters to assess atrial cardiomyopathy, which will likely impact how AF is clinically classified and managed in the future, are presented.
