Causas de la FA

risk factors

La fibrilación auricular se desarrolla como resultado de cambios estructurales en el corazón. Las causas de la FA no siempre son claras y pueden ser complejas.1

Las posibles causas de la fibrilación auricular son muy variadas, como enfermedades cardíacas, edad, antecedentes familiares, presión arterial alta, consumo de alcohol, obesidad y otras afecciones crónicas; todos estos factores pueden aumentar su riesgo de desarrollar FA.1
  

Otras afecciones crónicas

Factores del estilo de vida

Otros factores (factores no modificables)

  • Arteria coronaria y otras enfermedades del corazón3
  • Diabetes5,6
  • Insuficiencia cardiaca3,7,8,9,10,11
  • Presión arterial alta12
  • Antecedentes de ataque cardiaco3,13
  • Cirugía previa14,15
  • Respiración desordenada del sueño (Por ejemplo, apnea obstructive del sueño)5,16
  • Nivel de actividad17,1,5
  • Consumo de alcohol1,5,18
  • Obesidad2,4,19,5
  • Riesgos por enfermedades cardiovasculares: tabaquismo, estrés, cafeína y otros estimulantes.1
  • Defectos cardiacos congénitos6
  • Antecedentes familiares u otros factores genéticos3,20,21
  • Sexo masculino1,3,22 – Los hombres tienen un 13% más de probabilidades de verse afectados por la FA durante su vida que las mujeres3
  • Edad avanzada(1,22)
