AIMS A prothrombotic state with elevated levels of soluble P-selectin (sP-sel), fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor (vWf), and other haemostatic indices has been reported in some patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Whether these changes are due to AF itself or coexistent cardiovascular diseases remains a matter of debate. Therefore, in the present study, the differences in plasma levels of sP-sel, fibrinogen, and vWf between patients with idiopathic/lone AF and sex-, age-, and risk factor… CONTINUE READING
