While digoxin has been a popular medication in the past, particularly for patients with atrial fibrillation, a recent study looked at whether the medication was indeed beneficial for treatment when compared to placebo or no pharmaceutical therapy at all.

Dipak Kotecha, PhD, from the University of Birmingham discussed the results of a recent trial looking at this subject during the European Soceity of Cardiology's Annual Confrence in London.
