Patients with heart failure are at risk for the arrhythmias seen in normal hearts, such as AV nodal or bypass tract mediated tachycardias, and they are also at risk for atrial fibrillation and flutter because of the substrate changes associated with heart failure. The latter are by far the most commonly encountered conditions and are discussed in detail in this chapter. Bradyarrhythmias and the special situation of arrhythmias in the transplanted heart are also reviewed.
