Research Topic A

Hyperaldosteronism and atrial fibrillation


Atrial fibrillation is the most common sustained arrhythmia, with 6 million affected people in Europe. This research topic will investigate the relationship between hyperaldosteronism and atrial fibrillation, as a follow-up of the Prospective Appraisal on the Prevalence of Primary Aldosteronism in HYpertensive (PAPPHY) Study, which evidenced high prevalence of primary aldosteronism in the hypertensive patients with unexplained atrial fibrillation.
