Resumen

ARISTIZABAL, Julián et al. Atrial fibrillation: a current view. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2012, vol.19, n.5, pp.235-251. ISSN 0120-5633.

Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice and carries significant implications in the population's cardiovascular morbidity and mortality as well as in costs for the health systems. However, the knowledge of the pathophysiology of the arrhythmia and the emergence of new alternative therapies have changed the perspective in the management of this disease. We realize a review of recent developments in etiological and physiological concepts of the arrhythmia, as well as a review of the classification schemes and thrombohemorrhagic risk assessment in addition to the new advances in pharmacological and interventional therapies.

Palabras clave : atrial fibrillation; anticoagulation; pathophysiology.
