BACKGROUND No randomized studies have been conducted to evaluate the effects of renin-angiotensin aldosteron system blockers on postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of angiotensin converting-enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and ACEI plus candesartan, an angiotensin receptor blocker on postoperative AF. METHODS A group of consecutive patients undergoing coronary artery bypass and/or valve surgery was studied (n=128). The patients were randomized to… CONTINUE READING
