    • ...Even though there is no evidence that rhythm control strategy is associated with improved survival, anti-dysrhythmic drug treatment or electrical cardioversion (ECV) is used for symptomatic relief, cardiac functional capacity improvement, and embolic risk reduction [5, 6]. The success rate of ECV is approximately 70‐90% in acute AF (lasting less than 48 h) [7, 8], but falls to about 50% in patients with longstanding rhythm disturbance [7] ...

    • ...Therefore, there is a reason to make our conclusion regarding the effect of enalapril on long-term follow-up; (4) Although a recovery from structural remodelling has been proposed as the major mechanism by which enalapril reduces subacute AF recurrences, no attempt was made to assess changes in atrial size and fibrosis in the current study, and further studies are necessary to address this question; (5) Hypertension may be associated with ...
