Influence of preoperative atrial fibrillation on late results of mitral repair: is concomitant ablation justified?

Abstract

BACKGROUND There is considerable interest in atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation during cardiac operations, but there are few studies addressing the impact of preoperative AF on late outcome of surgery. We therefore investigated AF prevalence in nonrheumatic mitral regurgitation and its effect on late survival and morbidity after repair. METHODS From 1993… (More)
