Why Treatment is so Important

Afib is a condition that worsens over time. If left untreated, Afib damages your heartscarring, stretching and stiffening the heart muscle. It also increases your risk for stroke, heart failure, and dementia. Successful treatment can reverse some of this damage, improve symptoms, lower risk, and reduce the number of heart medications needed.
