Prevalence, pathophysiology, and clinical significance of post-heart transplant atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Atrial rhythm disturbances, in particular atrial fibrillation (AF) and flutter (AFL), are common in the denervated transplanted heart. However, there is a relative paucity of data in the prevalence, mechanism of arrhythmia, and long-term significance. OBJECTIVES (1) Determine the prevalence of AF and AFL in heart transplant patients, (2) define… (More)
