Atrial fibrillation, or Afib, is the most common type of arrhythmia, or abnormal heartbeat. Many people with Afib experience a rapid, irregular heartbeat that can be bothersome or even frightening.
In an arrhythmia, abnormal electrical signals through the heart muscle may cause the heart to beat too fast (tachycardia), too slow (bradycardia), or irregularly. This introduction covers the various types of arrhythmias, symptoms, and treatment options.
For those diagnosed with aortic valve stenosis, the minimally invasive procedure, known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), has become a quicker and less invasive option for appropriate patients.
