Brief Summary:

The Primary objective of this registry is to assess the control of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) over one year in patients attending clinical or specialized practices.

The Secondary objectives are:

  • To describe key demographics and treatment features in AF patients visiting cardiologists in various countries in Asia-Pacific.
  • To establish correlation between control of AF and clinical outcomes.
  • To establish correlation between treatment strategies and AF control.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of therapeutic success by patients in sinus rhythm or heart rate control at target (< 80 beats per minute at rest) [ Time Frame: At 12 ± 3 months follow-up ]
  2. Comparison of clinical outcomes (Cardiovascular death, Stroke, Myocardial infarction, etc) for patients in rhythm versus rate control strategies [ Time Frame: At 12 ± 3 months follow-up ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Treatment effectiveness evaluated by the proportion of patients in sinus rhythm [ Time Frame: At 1 year follow-up ]
