For the estimated 5 million people in the United States with atrial fibrillation (AF), several treatment approaches can be used, each of which has a wide range of pharmacological options. Guidelines from the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology Foundation, and Heart Rhythm Society recommend the implementation of rate control therapy to control heart rate and rhythm control treatment to establish a normal sinus rhythm for appropriate patients. The use of rate and/or rhythm control is often accompanied by antithrombotic therapies to reduce the risk of stroke in at-risk patients. This report provides quantitative analysis of treatment patterns, patient share by line of therapy, progression between lines, duration of treatment on each line, and use of concomitant treatment.
