OBJECTIVES Atrial fibrillation (AF) is still the most frequent rhythm disturbance after coronary artery surgery. Our aim was to evaluate the predictive value of preoperative brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels for determining postoperative new-onset AF in patients undergoing isolated first-time coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). METHODS We recruited 144 consecutive patients (51 women and 93 men) who underwent isolated CABG. Preoperative and… CONTINUE READING
