In brief: Underlying issues
The success of cardioversion, whether electrical or with medication, depends on the physical condition of the heart as well as the severity of any other conditions such as heart/lung disease or diabetes.

I agree with Dr. Fronzaglia. If you're referring to atrial fibrillation, it also depends on the duration of the arrhythmia. If it's >6 months, the long term success rate is very poor.
