OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of the osteoprotegerin (OPG)/receptor activator of nuclear factor-ĸB (RANK)/RANK ligand (RANKL) axis in the stabilization of spontaneously restored sinus rhythm (SR) in permanent atrial fibrillation (AF) patients after mitral valve (MV) surgery and study its clinical significance. METHODS Clinical data, biopsies of right atrial appendages were collected from 135 permanent AF patients who spontaneously restored SR after conventional isolated MV… CONTINUE READING
