Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common arrhythmia and is often difficult to manage. The classical risk factors for AF include hypertension, valvular disease, thyroid disease, cardiomyopathies, including ischaemic cardiomyopathies. When AF represents an electrophysiological phenomenon in structurally normal hearts it is termed lone AF. There are currently no studies to describe the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients with lone AF in Africa. This study's purpose is to describe the clinical characteristics and outcomes of Lone AF patients attending Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH).
