Abstract

The link between atrial fibrillation and cognitive decline and dementia has gained interest of the medical community lately. More research is being conducted to prevent and or delay this morbidity as no curative therapy is available for cognitive decline and dementia. The exact mechanism of causation is unclear. Multiple pathophysiological mechanisms have been implicated. Lately, treatment for atrial fibrillation including anticoagulation and catheter ablation therapies have shown to decrease the risk of deterioration of cognitive function. In this review we summarize epidemiologic studies linking the association, potential mechanisms, and impact of various modalities of therapy of atrial fibrillation on cognitive function outcomes.
