BACKGROUND Elevated red blood cell distribution width (RDW) predicts poor prognosis in patients with cardiovascular diseases. However, little is known about the association between RDW and outcomes after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODSANDRESULTS A total of 757 patients who underwent radiofrequency catheter ablation of AF were divided into heart failure (HF, n=79) and non-HF (n=678) groups; RDW was assessed as a predictor after catheter ablation in each. During a 22.3… CONTINUE READING
