Machanism of occurrence and maintenance in atrial fibrillation is complex.It is well known that atrial remodeling which includes electrical remodeling,structural remodeling and contractile remodeling,are the central contributors to the development and self-perpetuating of atrial fibrillation.Traditional therapy including rhythm recovering,anticoagualtion,ventricular rate controling can not meet the requirement of patients.Accordingly,anti-atrial remodeling represents the therapeutic future of atrial fibrillation.At present the anti-atrial remodeling treatment has already obtained encouraging achievement in the animal experiment and the clinical research.Some recent advancements of this area is reviewed in this article.
