The objective of this study was to define the predictive factors of atrial fibrillation in pure or very predominant mitral stenosis in a series of 472 consecutive patients divided into 2 groups according to the presence (group I: n = 113) or absence (group II: n = 359) of permanent atrial fibrillation. Univariate analysis showed that predictive factors for atrial fibrillation in mitral stenosis are age (40.3 +/- 9 years vs 31.4 +/- 9.5, p < 0.0001), history of commissurotomy or mitral… CONTINUE READING
