Early rhythm control improves outcomes in patients with asymptomatic atrial fibrillation

Asymptomatic patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) benefit from early rhythm control therapy comparably to symptomatic patients. This is the result of a subgroup analysis of the EAST – AFNET 4 trial that was presented by Professor Stephan Willems, Asklepios Hospital St. Georg, Hamburg, at the annual congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) on 27.08.2021 [1] and published in the European Heart Journal [2].
