Obese patients at increased risk for recurrent atrial fibrillation

According to the findings of a recent research presented at EHRA 2022, the scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), overweight patients are more at risk to experience a return of atrial fibrillation, a heart rhythm disorder, after a corrective procedure, compared to those with normal weight. The researchers said that they used Danish nationwide registries, which included a total of 9,229 adults who underwent a first-time atrial fibrillation from 2010 through 2018 to find that, as compared to the normal weight group, the overweight, obese and morbidly obese groups had a 19%, 22% and 32% higher likelihood of atrial fibrillation, respectively.
