Specialized Care for Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)

Atrial fibrillation, also known as AFib or AF, is the most common type of arrhythmia, affecting 5.5 million patients in the U.S. AFib can lead to various heart-related complications such as blood clots, stroke, and heart failure. A fluttering or quivering heartbeat is the most common symptom of AFib, but others are more subtle. Early treatment is vital, as AFib becomes harder to treat as symptoms become more severe. Inova's specialty AFib team collaborates with patients' general practitioners and cardiologists to help address AFib, generally when treatment with medications fails or when AFib persists after initial treatment.
