Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common of the serious cardiac rhythm disturbances and is responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality. Available drug therapy for AF has modest efficacy and is associated with the risk of life-threatening pro-arrhythmic complications. Dronedarone is a newer therapeutic agent with a structural resemblance to amiodarone and a better side effect profile. It is a multichannel blocker with antiadrenergic properties and has been evaluated in both rate and rhythm control strategies in the management of AF. In this review, we discuss the current role of dronedarone in the contemporary management of AF. Copyright © 2012 Cardiological Society of India. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
