Abstract:
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the commonest cardiac arrhythmia. Ageing and heart failure are both independent risk factors for the development of AF. In an ageing society the prevalence of AF will undoubtedly increase and become a burden on the economy. T'he aims of my thesis were to establish why the atria itself is predisposed to more arrhythmias than the ventricle and whether independently ageing and heart failure predispose the atria to an AF-like phenotype.
