Abstract

In patients with lone paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) and normal cardiac function, in the absence of hypertension, myocardial infarction, and cardiac insufficiency, perindopril (Aceon) or losartan (Cozaar) and low-dose amiodarone (Cordarone) therapy are more effective in preventing recurrence of AF than low-dose amiodarone alone. Adding losartan or perindopril to amiodarone therapy can inhibit left atrial enlargement.
