Post-operative atrial fibrillation is associated with a pre-existing structural and electrical substrate in human right atrial myocardium.
Post-operative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is a major health economic burden. However, the precise mechanisms in POAF remain unclear. In other forms of AF, sites of high dominant frequency (DF) in sinus rhythm (SR) may harbour 'AF nests'. We studied A

Correlation of atrial fibrillation cycle length and fractionation is associated with atrial fibrillation free survival.
Fractionation of electrograms in atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with structural and electrical remodeling. We hypothesized that fractionation can also be associated with the AF cycle length (AFCL). This study was aimed at calculating the mean

Is isolated aphasia associated with atrial fibrillation? A prospective study.
A cardioembolic source, usually atrial fibrillation (AF), is detected in 14-30% of strokes. If AF is found, anticoagulation therapy provides a substantial decrease of the risk of recurrent cerebrovascular ischemic events. AF is often paroxysmal, and

Is endothelin gene polymorphism associated with postoperative atrial fibrillation in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting?
The mechanism of development of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has not been clearly defined, and the involvement of multiple factors such as advanced age, withdrawal of β-blockers, inadequate at

Serum Soluble Semaphorin 4D is Associated with Left Atrial Diameter in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the serum soluble semaphorin 4D (sSema4D) in patients with atrial fibrillation and to investigate the relationship of serum sSema4D with left atrial diameter (LAD).

Postoperative atrial fibrillation in patients with left atrial myxoma.
The aim of this study was to determine the factors associated with postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with left atrial (LA) myxoma.

Disturbed Left Atrial Function is Associated with Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation in Hypertension.
Hypertension is the most prevalent and modifiable risk factor for atrial fibrillation. The pressure overload in the left atrium induces pathophysiological changes leading to alterations in contractile function and electrical properties.
