Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a frequent comorbidity in adults with atrial septal defect (ASD), one of the most common congenital heart defects. However, there are currently limited recommendations for the management of AF associated with ASD. This article describes a case using a planned approach of catheter ablation followed by transcatheter device closure and discusses management options.
