These trials, however, included only a small proportion of patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). Data from observational studies indicate that AF is associated with worse outcomes in patients with CHF.

Accordingly, the aim of the AF-CHF trial was to evaluate whether rhythm control in patients with systolic HF would be associated with d...
