INTRODUCTION Inflammation, endothelial dysfunction and metabolic pathways provide possible links between the inflammatory and hypofibrinolytic states in atrial fibrillation. Our aim was to explore the role of mass concentrations of PAI-1 and tPA, activities of PAI-1 and tPA as predictors of recurrence of atrial fibrillation adjusted for CRP.
