AIMS This study investigated the potential association between homocysteine levels and cardiovascular events or atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence following radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) in patients with AF. METHODS AND RESULTS Blood samples were obtained prior to the RFCA procedure. Levels of homocysteine and carboxy-terminal telopeptide of collagen type I (CITP), a collagen type I degradation marker, were measured in 96 patients receiving RFCA; 62 paroxysmal or persistent AF… CONTINUE READING
