Atrial arrhythmia is the most frequent cardiac arrhythmia. It is a source of significant morbidity.
Hypertension is a major risk factor for atrial arrhythmias. Primary hyperaldosteronism (PA) is a common cause of secondary hypertension, associated with a high prevalence of arrhythmias with a specific, sometimes curative, treatment. The purpose of the study is to show that the prevalence of PA among hypertensive patients under 65 years old with atrial arrhythmia is high, justifying systematic screening.
