The aim of this study was to investigate the time course of changes in autonomic nervous system activity in patients with long-standing atrial fibrillation (AF) following internal electrical conversion to sinus rhythm and to look for differences between patients who do and do not relapse. Time-domain indexes of heart rate variability were calculated from 24-hour Holter recordings on the day of conversion and 1 day and 1 month afterward for 22 patients with chronic (> 3 months) AF. Ten healthy… CONTINUE READING
