Relationship between Perioperative Left Atrial Appendage Doppler Velocity Estimates and New-Onset Atrial Fibrillation in Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery with Cardiopulmonary Bypass


BACKGROUND Literature search reveals that postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) occurs in 15%-40% of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients. Although several risk models exist for predicting the development of POAF, few have studied left atrial appendage (LAA) velocity. We hypothesize that an association between LAA velocity and development of POAF… (More)
