Heart valve problems and Atrial Fibrillation often go hand in hand so it may be
best to handle both at the same time. Valve dysfunction is often the "cause" of Afib and some valve issues
such as mitral valve regurgitation is usually present with atrial fibrillation.
The valve problems are usually found during a echocardiogram that is most often ordered by your cardiologist as onethe workup tests done to try
to determine the cause of the Afib.
