Abstract

OBJECTIVE - Our goal was to determine what drugs are most efficacious for controlling the ventricular rate in patients with atrial fibrillation. SEARCH STRATEGY - We conducted a systematic review of the literature published before May 1998, beginning with searches of The Cochrane Collaboration's CENTRAL database and MEDLINE. SELECTION CRITERIA - We included English-language articles describing randomized controlled trials of drugs used for heart rate control in adults with atrial fibrillation. DATA COLLECTION/ANALYSIS - Abstracts of trials were reviewed independently by 2 members of the study team. We reviewed English - language abstracts of non- English-language publications to assess qualitative consistency with our results. MAIN RESULTS - Forty-five articles evaluating 17 drugs met our criteria for review. In the 5 trials of verapamil and 5 of diltiazem, heart rate was reduced significantly (P
