Clinical Decision Support Algorithm for Prediction of Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation Following Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
Introduction: Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is exhibited by 20-40% of patients following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). POAF is associated with increased long-term morbidity and mortality, as well as ...
Changes in Autonomic Tone Resulting from Circumferential Pulmonary Vein Isolation
In patients with normal hearts, increased vagal tone is associated with the onset of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). Vagal denervation of the atria renders AF less inducible. Circumferential pulmonary vein ablation ...
