BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia seen in clinical practice. Increasing evidence indicates that inflammation and oxidative stress contribute to the pathogenesis of AF, but their role remains poorly defined. In addition, whether inflammation and oxidative stress are associated with particular types of AF is unclear. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to define the role of inflammation and oxidative stress in AF. METHODS Using a case-control study design… CONTINUE READING
