Does off-pump coronary artery bypass reduce the incidence of post-operative atrial fibrillation? A question revisited.

Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common post-operative complication in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting, with an increased incidence associated with advancing age. This study aims to determine whether off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) reduces the incidence of AF in a generalized population (mean age <70 years). A meta-analysis… (More)
