OBJECTIVES This study aimed to investigate the role of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) levels to predict left atrial (LA) reverse remodeling in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. BACKGROUND Although LA reverse remodeling after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for AF was reported to be associated with favorable outcomes and improvement of LA and left ventricular function, the predictor has not been extensively evaluated. METHODS This study included 104 consecutive patients who… CONTINUE READING
