OBJECTIVES Multiple mechanisms may be involved in postoperative atrial fibrillation. Therefore, our objective was to determine the risk factors for postoperative atrial fibrillation as a function of time after coronary artery bypass grafting or valve surgeries to determine which risk factors might predominate at different times. METHODS Parametric hazard functions were determined for 1583 patients and then in subgroups (coronary artery bypass grafting alone, mitral valve procedure, and aortic… CONTINUE READING
