OBJECTIVES The study was done to define the incidence, determinants and prognostic implications of onset of atrial fibrillation (AF) during follow-up of mitral regurgitation (MR) initially in sinus rhythm. BACKGROUND The rates and clinical implications of AF in MR are undefined. METHODS We analyzed the occurrence of AF under conservative management in two populations of patients with degenerative MR in sinus rhythm at diagnosis: 1) 360 patients (65 +/- 13 years, 74% men) with MR due to… CONTINUE READING
