BACKGROUND Oxidative stress is associated with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, little is known about the relationship between serum markers of oxidation and electrical activity in patients with AF. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible association between serum markers of reactive oxidative metabolism and atrial remodeling in paroxysmal and persistent AF. METHODS Derivatives of reactive oxidative metabolites (DROM), an index of oxidative stress, were… CONTINUE READING
