BACKGROUND Amiodarone is effective in preventing atrial fibrillation (AF). Recently, the possible antiarrhythmic effects of statins have been revealed. We hypothesized that statins added to amiodarone may reduce the recurrence rate of AF after successful electrical cardioversion (EC). MATERIAL/METHODS The retrospective analysis included 198 consecutive… CONTINUE READING
