AIM To examine the effects of sinus rhythm (SR) restoration on N-Terminal pro-BNP (NTP-BNP) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS Subjects with paroxysmal and persistent AF and absence of organic heart disease were prospectively studied. Chemical or electrical restoration of SR was attempted within 48 hours (n = 37) or >3 weeks (n = 73… CONTINUE READING
