    Title:
    Psychosocial, Clinical, and Demographic Predictors of Quality of Life in Pharmacologically Managed and Catheter Ablation Atrial Fibrillation and Atrial Flutter Patients
    Description:
    Doctoral Dissertation Research Project Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most diagnosed symptomatic arrhythmias in the United States, and approximately 2.2 million people are currently diagnosed with AF. Much is known about the Quality of Life (QoL) of AF/AFL patients after successful ablation procedures, but no published study of patients with AF/AFL specifically examined the impact of ablation procedures on the QoL of AF/AFL patients with comorbid depression and/or anxiety. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the contributions of psychosocial (depression and anxiety), clinical (time since first diagnosis, frequency of symptomatic episodes, and type of AF/ AFL), and demographic (age, gender, race, education, and marital status) variables to baseline quality of life (QoL) in pharmacologically managed and pre-ablated atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial flutter (AFL) patients, and the change in QoL of these AF/AFL patients after successful catheter ablation procedures. Methods: This was a prospective hypothesis-generating quasi-experimental study with a control group. The study consisted of 75 consecutive individuals scheduled for catheter ablation procedures for AF/AFL at the Washington Hospital Center and University of Maryland Medical Center Arrhythmia Center’s from April 2010 to March 2011. The control group also consisted of 75 patients with pharmacologically managed AF/AFL at the same sites. Hypotheses were tested with cross tabulations, t-tests, ANOVAs, repeated measures ANOVAs, and linear regression analyses. The instruments utilized in the current study include the Beck Depression Inventory II to measure depression, the STAI to measure anxiety, and the subscales of SF-36v2, and SSCL to evaluate QoL. Results: Female and younger AF/ AFL patients have worse QoL and elevated baseline depressive and anxiety symptoms were significant independent predictors of baseline QoL, based on the mental and physical components of the SF-36, and the symptom and severity components of the SSCL. Post catheter ablation findings demonstrated significant improvements in depressive and anxiety symptoms, and improvements in generic and disease specific QoL of successful catheter ablation procedure patients compared to control patients over 1 month. It also demonstrates that females, elevated baseline depressive symptoms, the interaction between catheter ablation procedures and elevated baseline anxiety symptoms, and baseline scores on QoL questionnaire subscales (SF-36 PCS, SF-36 MCS, SSCL-S, and SSCL-F) were significant independent predictors of change in QoL over 1 month. This is the first study to evaluate predictive factors of baseline QoL and change in QoL over 1 month of AF/ AFL patients evaluating psychosocial, clinical, and demographic variables. Conclusion: This study supported the importance of screening of depressive and anxiety symptoms in AF/ AFL patients. Depression, anxiety, and female gender should be considered as risk factors identifying patients who may require additional evaluation and treatment efforts to manage their cardiac conditions. The implementation of early depressive and anxiety symptom screening may provide information for cost effective and comprehensive approaches to the management of AF/ AFL patients.
