Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation Is Associated With High On-Aspirin Platelet Reactivity.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) contributes to a prothrombotic state through platelet activation. It is unclear whether increased platelet aggregability in patients with AF is caused by the underlying cardiovascular condition rather than the arrhythmia per se. We investigated the effect of postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) on platelet reactivity… (More)
