Beta-trace protein (BTP) has emerged as a novel biomarker of cardiovascular risk. In this study, the authors aimed to assess the relationship between BTP levels and presence of atrial fibrillation in patients who had controlled hypertension (HTN) and normal renal function. A total of 80 controlled HTN patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) and 80 age- and sex-matched controls with controlled HTN were enrolled. Serum BTP levels were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. BTP… CONTINUE READING
