Renin Angiotenin Blocker Pre-treatment and Recurrence After Pulmonary Vein Isolation in Patients with Paroxysmal and Persistent Atrial Fibrillation.

Abstract

Introduction: Pulmonary venous isolation has emerged as an effective method for preventing atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence. Yet, recurrence is common. Angiotensin-receptor-blockers (ARBs) and angiotensin-converting-enzyme-inhibitors (ACEI) are effective in reducing the extent of myocardial remodeling and fibrosis. Our aim was to study whether… (More)
