Excessive atrial fibrosis is involved in the pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation (AF), but little is known of left ventricular (LV) fibrotic status in patients with AF. In the present study, we investigated the presence of abnormal LV fibrosis in AF, its effect on cardiac function, a possible association with arterial stiffness (i.e., systemic cardiovascular fibrosis), and the parameters of endothelial activation, dysfunction, and damage. We also studied whether LV fibrosis could be linked to… CONTINUE READING
