1. Does advising patients to abstain from alcohol prevent atrial fibrillation recurrence?

Does advising patients to abstain from alcohol prevent atrial fibrillation recurrence? August 10, 2020 Be still my quivering heart: alcohol and atrial fibrillation Clinical Question: Does advising patients to abstain from alcohol prevent atrial fibrillation recurrence? Bottom Line: Observational studies consistently report a dose- response association between alcohol and new onset atrial fibrillation. Based on 1 randomized controlled trial (RCT) of “regular drinkers” with paroxysmal atrial (...) fibrillation, recurrence of atrial fibrillation happened in ~50% who abstain compared to ~70% who continue drinking. Abstaining can prevent 1 atrial fibrillation-related hospital visit for every 9 people compared to those who continue to drink at 6 months. Evidence: • Open-label RCT in Australia, 140 patients with atrial fibrillation for ~6 years (mainly paroxysmal) and “regular” alcohol use (mean 16 per week). Mean age 62, 85% male, randomized to oral and written advice to abstain from alcohol
