The range of highly sucessful treatments for junctional and ventricular arrhythmias is in marked contrast with the inadequacy of management strategies for atrial fibrillation, still dominated by pharmaceutical approaches. Treatments for AF have recently become the subject of great attention, with the emergence of entirely new therapeutic concepts.

The aim of the Clinical Approaches to Tachyarryhthmias series is to update the physician, cardiologist, and all those responsible for the the care of patients with cardiac arrhythmias. In this volume, Murgatroyd and Camm seek to place new developments in the field into a clinical perspective. Of particular use to the clinician is the exceptional discussion of the efficacy of various pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatment modalities. Most major drugs are included, as are the latest nonpharmacologic techniques, including ablation.
