The HFA Atrial Disease workshop is a joint initiative of HFA Committees on Co-morbidities, the Translational Research Committee, the Committee on Surveys, Registries and Epidemiology, Committee of HFPEF and the Committee on Cardiomyopathies of the Heart Failure Association.
The atria play may a major role in the circulatory system and are affected by a number of conditions (valve disease, hypertension, heart failure, congenital disease, pulmonary hypertension, lung disease and atrial fibrillation/flutters syndromes). It is misleading to view Atrial Fibrillation as an isolated entity, independent of atrial function or the disorders that pre-dispose to it.
Atrial disorders are extremely common, cause untold morbidity and expense, they also complicate many disorders in cardiology and beyond. Yet no specialist society has codified Atrial disorders, an essential step towards increasing awareness, enhanced research and ultimately clinical practice advice for the betterment of patients and cost reduction for health care systems.
Heart Failure is the world's leading congress for experts in cardiology to discuss strategies for a universal approach towards prevention and the treatment of heart failure.
