Angiotensin II Type 1 Receptor Blocker Prevents Atrial Structural Remodeling in Rats with Hypertension Induced by Chronic Nitric Oxide Inhibition


The prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) increases in patients with hypertension. Angiotensin II is involved in structural atrial remodeling, which contributes to the onset and maintenance of AF in paced animal models. We investigated the role of angiotensin II in atrial structural remodeling in rats with hypertension. Ten-week-old male Wistar-Kyoto rats… (More)
